Julia Vogl MRSS
THE ART WORK MUST INVOLVE OR ENGAGE OTHERS
THE ART WORK MUST EMPLOY A STRATEGY OF DÉCOR
American and British, Vogl works internationally. Her social sculpture incorporate public engagement, architectural interventions and colour. She is resolved to create experiences and memories for the viewer, prompting discourse, while creating aesthetically rich works. She is guided by the manifesto above.
She is ambitious, with a record of scaling buildings like the UCL portico, The Chiltern Apartments, London and the 140M fence in Bow London. Driven to create community with her work, she has worked with thousands of individuals to create social experiences and powerful collective sculpture.
Vogl defines many of her works as Social Sculpture, which is a contemporary take on the definition that Joseph Beuys coined 50 years ago. Vogl’s approach invites the public to take action, not necessarily a creative one, and the individual actions gradually build a collective work or data set that contributes to a visual product and catalyst for socialising.
