Julia Bavyka is a Kazakhstan-born artist, arts worker and (migrant) writer living on unceded Gadigal land, also known as Sydney. They are interested in the intersection of artistic and everyday research, and always on the alert for practices of hospitality and generosity, as well as labour conditions and survival tips. Their practice is both conceptual and social, focusing on the gallery as a site for dialogue and thinking – beyond modes of representation, to possibilities of being together and experiencing together. Their hands are busy — either with pen or gloves. They are a member of the non-profit artist and non-artist run initiative Frontyard Projects in Marrickville, Sydney.
