used to be: Julia Griffin

Posted on 11 November 2021

Presented within the basement of Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces: Warrington, and supported by Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival the new immersive installation and accompanying artworks by Julia Griffin entitled ‘I used to be….’ with Lancaster-based sound and visual artist Dave Forrest this event will immerse audiences in a multimedia experience which takes advantage of the unique venue.

Julia’s practice is informed by the moving body and its relationship to site as object, author and archive. She is involved with the investigation, exploration and experimentation of dance through cross art form collaborations and the interplay of ‘live’ performance and the juxtaposition between ‘live action’ and ‘recorded action’.

Julia has a specific interest in Dementia and the issue the disease raises for carers, having both parents that have suffered with Vascular Dementia over a 15-year period. This work is dedicated to them.

The event will be supported by visual artwork from students from Warrington and Vale Royal College.

Date: 27th November
at New Art Spaces Warrington, Sankey Street (Old Marks and Spencer)
