Julie Benoit
sound installation

Julie Benoit is an artist that is interested in bringing attention to the overlooked incidental moments that make up the everyday. She is interested in the subtleties that are constantly happening, that are so banal that one tends to not even notice them. Benoit is interested in focusing attention on that moment where the clouds pass overhead, the way their movement just barely darkens the leaves on a tree, and then seconds later the leaves are bright again because the cloud has passed. She is interested in the blade of grass that grows through a crack in the sidewalk, that barely moves with the wind. She is interested in the siren that we can barely hear in the distance as it slowly nears. It is these all of these small things that make up the everyday.
