Julia Haumont (1991) lives and works in Paris. In 2012 she debuted her plastic artist career by entering at the Beaux Arts de Paris. She studied alongside Jean-Michel Alberola and ceramics sculptor Claude Dumas. She graduated with the congratulations of the jury in 2017. Also, she studied fashion design at L’Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, de facto, textile is very involved in her plastic work as well. Using various materials, mainly from the craft industry: earthenware, glass and textile; these mediums all have the common point to be time-consuming, the be generated and then shaped by the hands of the artist. The slow temporality they induce contrasts between the immediacy of our era. This resonates with Julia’s personal history and current questioning. A kind reminiscence of memories, lived or fantasized. That’s what comes to your mind at first sight when being confronted to Julia’s work; instantly you are involved in her world full of paradox where every details of her hybrid installations display strength and delicacy, figurative and non-figurative are responding one to the other, all this standing still by her young girls sculpted on scale 1. The ambiguity conveyed by the seemingly innocent figures and lascivious postures of the earthenware sculpted girls and the very “kid-making” vibe of the abstract textile compositions is the way to enter her reality. Getting closer to the textiles compositions you will be able to observe the meticulous net where pearls and shreds, sequin and threads that just ask to be pulled, weave a whole intimacy that instantly grasp to universal emotions of the past that each of us carry in and question the future, femininity and gazes, in that very special caption Julia’s installations set.
