JULIA KATER | 1980 – Paris, França

Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. Bachelor's Degree in Pedagogy at PUC/SP and Graduate Studies in Psychomotricity at ISPEGAE, OIPR Paris/France. Course of Photography at ESPM/SP.

The research of the artist Julia Kater is guided in the elaboration of a body of work that can treat it from its visual improbability. Whether by the collage brought about by different overlaid photographic prints, which announces a watchful sky – despite its invisible character – or by videos that bring about the rearrangement of a set of actions and phrases, each work in its own way prioritizes the elaboration of bodies from everyday scenes that suggest simultaneous shared experiences with the persistent memory together with its struggle with forgetfulness, its ally and the cause of the gradual loss of a large part of the truths.

 Her most recent solo exhibitions are: Breu, Oscar Niemeyer Museum (Curitiba, Paraná – 2018); Zonas de Gatilho, SIM Galeria (São Paulo, Brazil -2018); Acordo, Palazzo Rossini (Venice, Italy - 2017); Da banalidade, Tomie Ohtake Institute (São Paulo, Brazil - 2016); Como Se Fosse, Caixa Cultural (Brasília, Brazil – 2014). Her most recent group exhibitions and festivals include: Mutatio, Garage Amelot, (Paris, France - 2019); Ragusa Foto Festival, Palazzo La Rocca (Ragusa, Italy -2019); Anthology Film Archives (New York, USA -2018);  13 edition Experiments in Cinema Festival, (Alburquerque, USA - 2018); Song for my hands - Museu Oscar Niemeyer ( Curitiba, Brazil - 2017); Rencontres Internacionales Paris/ Berlin - New Cinema and Contemporary Art (Germany and France- 2017), Ao amor do público I, Museu de Arte do Rio ( Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - 2016); Bienal de Assunção (  Asuncion, Paraguay - 2015), Frestas - Trienal de Artes, Sesc Sorocaba (Ribeirão Preto, Brasil).
