Jules Dorey Richmond
Jules Dorey Richmond is a sculptor who makes books, video
installations and performances. She is fiercely committed to making
work drawn from the autobiographical - framing and connecting what
impels her fine art practice to a larger field of feminist thinking
Over the past 20 years Jules has made a diverse range of
performance and art works with, for and by various communities
throughout Britain and Northern Europe. These range from
large-scale out-door spectaculars, to happenings &
interventionist works for night-clubs, parks, the streets, museums
and cafes through to small-scale touring shows, performance
installations, film works and gallery pieces. She was co-artistic
director of Clanjamfrie from 1989 – 1997, a Glasgow-based
performance group, and has worked extensively with her long-term
collaborator David Richmond, most notably on the Artist as Witness
series of works with veterans, witnesses and survivors of WW2.
Jules is currently working on a practice-based PhD proposal in
order to develop a theorised and historical context for this
complex area of autobiography and the feminine.
