Julie Semoroz

Julie Semoroz’s political posture in itself proposes a misalignment with post-industrial society and the capitalist system. She proposes views and provokes reflection on urban space, ecology, utopia, living together with an anthropological approach mixed with art. She works on the invisible and researches information, non-verbal communication and sound frequencies in collaboration with neuroscientists.

She experiments with noise-like and experimental sound forms. Voice and field recordings are the founding elements of her research. She sets up heterogeneous and multiple projects, solos, collaborations and collectives in art spaces, theaters or public spaces. She develops performances involving visual art, sound, dance or installation.

In 2020, she received an award from the Swiss National Science Foundation in collaboration with the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (CISA) at the University of Geneva for her project TWELVE THOUSAND TWENTY. In 2021 and 2022, she received two grants from the city and state of Geneva for her research with CISA and the NCCR Evolving Language. She is regularly supported by the State of Geneva and Pro Helvetia.
