Juliette Blightman (b. 1980, UK) lives and works in Berlin. She studied at Central Saint Martins and Byam Shaw School of Art. Working with various media and forms her films, drawings, performances, installations and texts draw an exploration on the ordinariness of everyday life and its ritualised dimensions, the notions of radical subjectivity and the personal and public spheres of life. Her work evokes moments of shared intimacy between friends and reminds the viewer that art and everyday life always happen alongside each other.
