Julie Morel’s interdisciplinary work often references the history of Conceptual art and tends toward textuality: the text in its written and visual form. Fueled by the need to question our relationship to language, the artist’s drawings, installations, online projects, editions and performances explore various written fields: literature, storytelling, translation, computer coding, and meta-language. Morel dedicates part of her time to fieldwork research with other disciplines (sociology, science), which leads to collaborative projects (Clipperton Island scientific mission in the Pacific Ocean and Rheum Nobile residency in Nepal). She organizes exhibitions and events on artists’ books, collaborative art, and environmental causes. She regularly exhibits her work in both institutions and alternative spaces, including the Pompidou Center, Glasgow Sculpture Studio, Neuchâtel Art Center, White Space Zürich, Basekamp Gallery Philadelphia. Morel has been a resident artist at la Gaîté Lyrique (Paris) and for the Villa Médicis Hors les murs (New York/Chicago). She has taught at the National Fine Art School (Paris) and EESAB (Brittany, France). She also has been invited to present her work and conduct workshops at the University of South Florida, UQAM (Montreal), the Political Science School (Paris), and The New School (Paris). Morel is currently a Fulbright scholar at Loyola University.
