Julie Griffiths is a visual artist and textile designer working within social practices of research, co-production and para-curating, assembling trans-local networks of co-creation. She works on a register of scales from 1:1 to community events. She is interested in ecologies of place, belonging, migration and encounter, focusing the themes of her work on the rural location of her practice. She frequently borrows tropes and understandings from the domestic and eco sphere, using processes of unlearning, slow-ness and critical cartography.
Recent and ongoing works include, A Stitch in Time (2021), a collectively produced embroidery, testing understandings of evolving national identity, conviviality and accommodation; snail[S]pace, (Donegal, 2021) a speculative culture house and residency for slow and durational practice; Tar Isteach | Come In, as a member of the Ground Up Artists Collective for Bealtaine, Age & Opportunity (Roscommon 2019-20), with refugees and asylum seekers on hospitality; Fold & Rise (2016 ongoing), a travelling conversation on culture, labour and time; Till/Until (Donegal 2015), a collective flax growing engagement and festival. She is a founder member of Conjunction (2020), a pan-European, public art curatorial collective.
