Julia Magdalene Romas (DE/PL) is currently studying at the Hochschule Für Bildende Künste in Hamburg with the focus on Theory (M.A.). Her theoretical work "My I Oni" (We and The Other) deals with the research on "Formation of Polish identity and the image of the "Other" ¬ Integration and Outsourcing of the "Stranger" in the symbolism of Slavic myths, rituals and traditional costumes on the example of pre-Christmas "Herody", based on a photography showing the polish tradition of "Herody", taken by Jozef Bacior (PL, 1949).
Her work includes paintings, sculpture, sounds, poetry and body movements in the sense of performance art. The multi-faced practices is dealing with themes like the theory of "othering", the boundaries between myths, folklore and religion on ideologies and national socialism. In her research she is collecting slavic folklore elements, sounds and voice recordings and natural materials. Her imagery is characterized by slavic folkloristic patterns as well as surreal and naive elements of imagination: her paintings, costumes and sculpture are working as installation and changing their context in the performance by the movements, sounds and quality of the human body. The work is working in two strands: the individuality of the art work, which can stay by its own and the Gesamtkunstwerk, which is combining the multi-faced practice in one performativ installation.
