Julika Rudelius explores human conduct: how people behave individually and in groups, in private and in public. She confuses and blurs the real and the fictional, training the camera on events going on around her, combining documentary and staged events to comment on society and the people in it. What are their fascinations? Who are their role models? Boys in a train compartment brag about their sexual conquests. Careerists in a bland office talk about money and what it means to them. Middle-aged American ladies of the 'jet set' will do anything it takes to hold onto the vestiges of youth. Rudelius maintains strict orchestration of the staged scenes and the themes that are dealt with. Her manipulation is subtle but ultimately so convincing that the viewer is confronted by his or her own gullibility.
Julika Rudelius was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1999-2000.
She won the Amsterdamprijs voor de Kunsten (NL) in 2008 and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award (US) in 2009.
