Julie Gough is an Australian visual artist working predominantly in sculpture and installation art. Her art and research practice involves uncovering and re-presenting historical stories as part of an ongoing project that questions and re-evaluates the impact of the past on our present lives. Much of the work refers to her own and her family's experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people and is concerned with developing a visual language to express and engage with often conflicting and subsumed histories. A central intention of Gough's art is to invite a viewer to a closer understanding of our continuing roles in, and proximity to unresolved National stories.

Julie will also exhibit in Deadly at Tandanya for the Adelaide Festival, 28 February to 25 March, 2012.
