Fit for Purpose

18th November 2012 - 6th January 2013




Cardboard packaging with its cleverly designed tabs, slots, creases and apertures is the starting point for this m2 Gallery installation.  The empty package sets the stage for a reinterpretation of the object it was originally intended to contain and protect.


Julia also makes short videos, some of these will be shown at the opening on 18th November.  If you can’t make the opening, you can view them on her Vimeo page here.
