Julie Murray: Mysteries of the Visible World

Julie Murray: Mysteries of the Visible World

“Julie Murray is one of the most significant female experimental filmmakers of the last twenty-five years, creating a beautiful and subtle body of work that moves between meticulously edited found footage films to richly beautiful first-person visual diary films.” —LIFT, Toronto

Irish-born Julie Murray’s works of the past decade further expand her singular, personal world of pictures and sounds as moments of intimate exploration and visceral sensation. Murray’s cinema discovers remarkable patterns and textures in ordinary objects–details filled with wonder that are impossible to see with the naked eye. A wizard with the camera, Murray is a master of texture, light, and the creative uses of sound, yielding complex montage works that imbue each element with ambiguity and evocative mystery. For her first REDCAT program since 2010, Murray presents several recent films and digital pieces, including material filmed in her Ireland homeland. Highly regarded as an experimental artist, she has been included in the Whitney Biennial, the Museum of Modern Art, international film festivals, and her work is included in collections of major museums.
