Judith Barry

  • Throughout a long and productive career, the artist, writer, and educator Judith Barry has utilized a research–based methodology to explore a wide range of topics in her art. Both the form and the content of her work evolve as the research proceeds. She often makes use of installation as a way to combine many of her disparate interests. These immersive environments are based on experiments incorporating architecture, sculpture, performance, theatre, film/video/new media, graphics, and interactivity. Each of her projects aims to provide new ways for engaging conceptually and visually within a space. Emerging from architecture, literary and film theory, and dance, Barry has translated these disciplines directly into specific physical relations that place the viewer in a dialogue with the content of her research. She constructs a variety of ‘subject positions’ for the viewer to inhabit that function like point-of-view perspectives and allow the viewer to both cohere the meaning of the work by inhabiting the space of the installation, and simultaneously to ascribe a multiplicity of meanings to the experience.
