SINGING AUTOPORTRAIT WORLD SURVIVAL TOUR 1966 – 2006 is Julianne Rose’s experience as the winner of Australia’s ‘Face of The Year’1985. An ironic reflection on the beauty industry, a comparison between human & manufactured dolls.  “When valued for your plastic, does anybody even care what you have to say?” A life size triptych consisting of photography, lights and sound, taking on the form of a musician’s fly case sitting on a tripod illustrates the beauty industry.and a comparison between manufactured and human dolls. The artist’s head is imposed onto the body of a plastic, lifeless barbie, a robot-like expression and face painted with doll-style makeup. The beauty Queen who is not quite alive, yet not totally dead either appears soulless and cold. In the place of her heart an oversized plastic speaker.One nipple has been transformed into a mechanical button that, when pressed, sets off a karaoke version of “I Will Survive” through the speaker and flashing disco lights from both of the flanking portraits, while the crown on the central portrait sparkles… (extract from interview by Anna Holtzman -Eyemazing Magazine)

CHRISTMAS FOREVER (2011) Chaque année, le retour de Noël, comme une ritournelle, réchauffe le coeur des enfants , qui se mettent à espérer, si ce n’est un monde meilleur, du moins plus beau, en tout cas pour quelques instants. Instants de fête de lumières qui font briller les yeux! Moment ou le temps semble s’arrêter. Ou l’on en prendre plein la vue: decorations étincelantes, guirlandes colorées, sapins scintillant. mais tout ce bling bling éblouissant ne saurait paraitre vrai. Joie forcée, sourires crispés, cadeaux étincelantes, repas sophistiqués, cette période de l’année incite à une fête outrée & outrancière, voire outrageuse, qui bascule dans l’excessif & l’éxtréme… Le projet CHRISTMAS FOREVER nous plonge au coeur de ces contradictions, nous invite à débusquer les faux-semblants des apparences et le tape à l’eoil du quotidien sur papier glacé « glamorisé » dans nos magazines. Julianne Rose nous propose un catalogue enfants-poupées à croquer, une collection d’idoles séduisantes, nous offre un arbre de Noël orné de jouets aspirés, un Prince charmant & des images pieuses de Madones éthérées. Pourtant un malaise émane de ces photos sublimes & objets sous cellephone..  (extrait texte du catalogue CHRISTMAS FOREVER par Isabelle de Maison Rouge)

EXPIRED- Video installation


ARMED RESPONSE (2006-ongoing) is an evolutive project of installations & images demonstrating how violence has, in many aspects, become an important & banalized role in the world of children. Movies, video games, internet & many toys convey messages that incite violence, war discrimination, racism,militarism, egoism, & cruelty. The ARMED RESPONSE projects display life size customized mannequins in diverse installations, scenes brandishing dolls representing different races, toy weapons in dramatic mise en scenes, which mimic some children at this very moment moving buttons of video games in order to detonate bombs or inflict torture on imaginary hostages & peers. This body of work, employing only toys & dolls available to a non restricted public, is a reminder that the children of today are the adults of the future.
