I chewed and changed for the bluest.
– Giulia as Violet Beauregarde

Leave my body [planet] or die in it.
– Giulia as a Na’vi proverb

Giulia Essyad is an artist, sculptor, poet, performer, born in Switzerland in 1992. Interested by the power of representation, she experiments with sculpture (ceramics, 3D printing, natural and industrial materials), video and writing, as well as with her own body during performances, live or recorded. Her artistic work has taken her into research and practices that belong to the Bodypositive movement. As a digital native born in a female body, Essyad’s practice concerns the representation of bodies, online and IRL, and engages with the varied forms of alienation that come with the consumption and production of body images.

Cherish and the artist would like to specially thank Loren Kagny and Viktor Tibay.
