Giulia Essyad (CH)
is an artist, poet, performer, born in 1992. As a digital native born in a female body, Essyad’s practice concerns the representation of bodies, online and IRL, and engages with the varied forms of alienation that come with the consumption and production of body images. In 2018 she initiated a cycle of works titled «Blue Period», which is still ongoing. Locating uncharted spaces within the field of her interests, it uses the color blue as a focal point and signifier for otherness and artificiality. So far the works have included photoshopped portraits, ball-jointed dolls, various sculptures and a street performance. In 2020 she presents works from this corpus, as well as new writing.
