Julie Vayssière was born in 1979 in Toulouse, France. She lives and works in Paris. Her work consists of photographs, videos and text taken from streets, vitrines, websites, her close friends and family. She prefers to make things simple, using ready-to-use materials in ordinary and undramatized ways. Vayssière can be seen as an artist who duplicates our commonplace surroundings; combining marketing language with conceptual processes, advertisements with intimate interviews, and redefining minimalist poetry.
During her residency at Sazmanab, Julie and her partner Julien worked on a new performance with two actors and presented the performance to a public audience at Sazmanab.
The visit of Julie Vayssière to Tehran was made possible through the generous support of Institut Français.
