Spanning over a decade, Julie and Robbie’s practice is shaped by a friendship and adventurous spirit that explores where and how they are able to share time and space together.
Julie and Robbie’s practice investigates how they can be/sit/move together in different physical places and terrains. As a result, they design and make objects to help them overcome access challenges. Their actions are collected through film documentation and provide a context for sharing their practice and the many themes arising in performances and discussions.
