Juliet Davis

The works I create take hybrid forms between live performance, intervention, installation, video and publication; exploring both lived, experienced spaces and the gaps between social conventions to propose new ways to inhabit society. I use pre-existing movements, situations, words or shapes from our daily lives which are shifted and made uncanny, creating awkward situations which blur the lines between ‘art’ and life. Through examining these liminal spaces I hope to encourage an ‘active’ engagement from viewers/witnesses, stimulating critical discourse around ideas of social acceptability and the place of play and idleness in our society. Collaboration is a central part of my practice – whether with artists, researchers, performers or various local groups. I strive to share the joy of performing and communal actions (dancing, playing, eating, partying!) through my work.
