Julie Barranger (France, 1977) lives and works in Tokyo. Graduated in textile design in ESAA DUPERRE school of Paris, and in contemporary arts and new media at the University of Paris 8 Saint-Denis. She practiced contemporary dance, and worked as a projectionist in cinema theatre, trends interiors and fashion stylist in Paris. Her artistic work is sensual and organic, but still brings the spectator to an uncomfortable place, between threat and eroticism. The exploration of the physical unconscious meets the uncanny in a mirror, trying to sound out the deepest parts of the human being, but mostly in a tender and joyful way. Recently she’s been inspired by the Situationist movement to create videos in Japan.

Geisha (2001) Through the repetitive movement of putting lipstick on, the concentration on the woman’s own pleasure slowly turns into an excessive and obsessive movement. This narcissistic game becomes hysterical but stays fun. The music was added in 2007 by the electronic composer Timecode, to support the crazy spirit of the video. SOUNDTRACK Timecode, Christophe Devulder CAST Julie Barranger

109 Girls (2010) is a contemplative reflection about the position of the woman in the Japanese modern society. The video shows the image of sexy or cute girls, a hyper femininity inspired by fashion, that is so important here in Tokyo for young ladies. This image conveys power and fragility and is a way to take position in the relation to men by focusing on desire. It particularly reveals a formatting of the woman by our society. We can feel both touched and irritated by the attitude of the girls who need to overlook to be desirable by men, and at the same time the slow motion and sweet music conveys a feeling of tenderness.

Tokyo Lips (2010) Atmospheric film, floating like a dream, Tokyo Lips expresses the essence of magic and extravagant nights that generates Tokyo. The camera plunges from skyscrapers; caress the lights at night, gliding on the faces and in dark alleys, focuses on a magnetic and impenetrable character. Between light and shadow, the video consists of a long sequence shot traversing the counter of a stylish bar somewhere in the heart of the city. A seductive and mysterious night, inspired by Situationism, somehow erotic, where you meet characters who attract, and who are all portraits of Tokyo by night.
