Doremi Residency's Portfolio

Julia Parks

“My practice encompasses film, animation and photography, often using series of photographs and projected 16mm film.

Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2015, I moved back to northwest Cumbria where I grew up. Recently, I’ve been creating observational portraits of events such as the arrival of shipping containers to the west coast of Cumbria and the annual football game, Uppies and Downies, which takes place in Workington every Easter.

I have exhibited in both England and Japan including; Young Cumbrian Artist of the Year, The Vallum Ditch Gallery, Carlisle (2016), All Work and No Play, The People’s History Museum, Manchester (2016), and 5 under 30, The Daniel Blau Gallery, London (2015). In June 2016 I was selected for an interdisciplinary group residency at PRAKSIS, Oslo, Norway. I’m organising an Arts Council funded film project called the Allerdale Film Farm, which will take place at the end of August 2017.”
