The Radiophonic Artist - Women of the Island

Welcome to the strange and magical world of sound performance artist Julia Drouhin, where radios are instruments and records are edible.

DIRECTOR/PRODUCER: Rebecca Thomson
CO-PRODUCERS: Lara van Raay & Ninna Millikin
DURATION: 5mins 1sec
YEAR: 2017

Julia Drouhin is a performance artist with an unusual way of hearing the world. She finds radio static ‘relaxing’, constructs records that can be eaten, and delights in recording the ‘mundane’ noises that surround her. Born in France, Julia’s art practice changed significantly when she moved to Tasmania in her adult life. The landscape, soundscape and community of the isolated island inspired Julia to expand her art practice to incorporate her body, the new sounds she encountered, and a darker more ritualistic approach. Julia’s art is fuelled by a curiosity, playfulness and desire to open people’s ears to hear the world a little bit differently.
