Juliana Borinski is a German-Brazilian artist based in Paris, France. Her art has been exhibited internationally in contemporary art centers and museums since 2006. Working with still and often camera-less images (photography) and moving images (film, installation, video), she experiments with the conjunction between iconography and iconoclasm. Juliana's work explores various media issues through an analysis of their primary resources: chemistry, matter and devices. When working with photography or film, Juliana Borinski almost never uses a camera. She creates images, usually abstract, by directly using photosensitive paper or film to explore their aesthetic and technical capacities. What should only be a receptacle for the image, its support, becomes the very material of her work. Juliana Borinski looks for error, lack, chance. She voluntarily places herself at the margin of the systems she exploits, the visual media, taking care to avoid the image in the usual sense and the new technologies, to privilege the "almost nothing". This unconventional practice is also reflected in the fact that each piece is unique, at a time when copying an element only requires a single click, and when her working tools are photography and cinema, the heroes of technical reproducibility analyzed by Walter Benjamin.
Juliana Borinski graduated from the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne (Germany), in 2007, where she studied with Valie Export, Siegfried Zielinski, Jürgen Klauke and Matthias Müller.
She was a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) in Ghent (Belgium), in 2011.
In 2018 she was invited to teach at the department Art in the Public Space of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels (ARBA-AEsP).
