Julieanna Preston is a Pākehā tauiwi artist living in Ōtaki Beach, Aotearoa and working at Te Kunenga ki Pūrehuroa/ Massey University, Te Whanganui-a-Tara/ Wellington, Aotearoa/ New Zealand. Her trans-disciplinary creative practice draws significantly from architecture, design, fine art, sound art, feminist philosophy, geology, geography, literature and landscape studies. In the last thirteen years, the work has taken the form of site-responsive, durational, auto-theoretical, live art performances shaped as relational encounters of vibrant material bodies and place and framed by historical and contemporary events. Julieanna’s extensive writing practice often critically reflects on her performances in an effort to reveal their backstory, context and what new understanding those performances generated. These attributes are nurtured and shared in her supervision of masters and doctoral students. A full spectrum of works can be found at www.julieannapreston.space.
