About the artist

"My current body of work investigates our relationship to food, and more specifically our disassociation to the production of animal products and our disconnect to animals as food. My practice has been influenced by growing up on a farm in the rural prairies of Manitoba, travel, personal memories and family history. I use the abject to create unpleasant, uncomfortable and surreal pieces about our food consumption, causing a breakdown of borders between self and other. My work explores a side of consumption and excess most of us would prefer to ignore, hide away and pretend as though it doesn't exist."

Julianna is an emerging artist, born in Winnipeg and raised on the prairies of Southern Manitoba. She completed her first BFA at the University of Manitoba in Art History with honours. In May 2017, she received her second BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Visual Art. While attending Emily Carr, she had the opportunity to take part in an exchange program and study in Tallinn, Estonia at the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA). Her works primarily focus in clay, but she also extends her practice to textiles and sculpture.  Julianna is a current MFA student at the University of Manitoba.
