Julianna Damer is a French-Canadian artist and photographer from Edmonton, Alberta currently practicing in Toronto, Ontario. She recently received her BFA in Photography Studies from Ryerson University. In 2013, she completed a BSc in Human Ecology at the University of Alberta with a major in Textiles & Clothing, which now largely informs her practice.
Photography, sculpture, video and installation allow her to study the potential of manipulation of materials and textiles and the tensions between control and acceptance of environmental influence. She often creates illusions through the play of two and three-dimensional photographic and sculptural objects in an attempt to challenge and reimagine ways of seeing and to suggest the artist’s hand in the process.
