Julie Oh is a Canadian artist working with photography, video, and installation to examine human’s relationship to common objects. All of her interventional works subscribe to the object’s defined purpose: currencies are exchanged, a ball is bounced, a slinky is extended, and soap bottle is refilled.  Through these gestures, she questions the indeterminate space where sincere intentions lead to absurd or often wrong results.  It is these intimate gaps in perception that drives her to explore the potentialities in objects, speculate on their histories, and reframe their essential qualities.

Julie currently maintains an active studio practice in the prairies of Saskatchewan with the generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
