the Turner Prize 2001: Isaaic Julien

by Jessica Lack

The Tate, Winter 2001, no. 27, pp. 26 -27

Isaaic Julien reviews his work leading up to his acceptance of The Turner Prize in 2001. In this interview Julien reflects on his attraction to exploring meaning related to form and dimension by experimenting with the physical space that his exhibitions take place in as well as surfaces for projections. Julien is known for materializing the dialogue between the architechtural space and the interior of an alternate reality within the videos and projections of his installations. The complexity of his work is discussed as Julien describes the importance of many small details and elements that are of concern when he is creating a piece.
