Julia Parks received her undergraduate degree from Central Saint Martins College of Art in 2015. In 2013 She participated in an exchange program studying photography and printmaking at Kyoto Seika University, Japan. Her practice encompasses film, animation and photography, often using series of photographs and projected 16mm film. Parks explores the methodologies of 20th century filmmakers and photographers, often reenacting historical artworks in the attempt to re-imagine and experience being in the moment of their production. More recently, she has been documenting sheep farms in the west of Cumbria and is currently developing a 16 mm film which observed the process of a trawler hauling in a shrimp catch just off the coast of the town of Silloth in Cumbria. Parks has exhibited in both England and Japan including; Young Cumbrian Artist of The Year, The Vallum Ditch Gallery, Carlisle (2016), All Work and No Play, The People’s History Museum, Manchester (2016), and 5 under 30, The Daniel Blau Gallery, London (2015).
