Into the Light
Julie Marsh is a video artist and film-maker, using video installation and sound to explore the phenomenon of sense perception as a language of the body. INTO THE LIGHT marks a subtle departure in Marsh’s work. Rather than her usual focus on human subjects, INTO THE LIGHT features moths flitting from one light source to another. As one light is switched off the moths are attracted to another and appear to pass through the camera lens and, by extension, virtually through the viewer.
This explorative approach leads to work that is highly engaging, taking into account the relationship between viewer and the specific place where the works are shown. Her installation work pushes the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional video by dragging her imagery into the three dimensional gallery space, involving the viewer within the environment depicted in her work.
