I have nightmares about the ocean. Tidal waves and drowning.
I love the ocean. It is where I go when I need to reset.

Hidden Pussy

a performance by Julia Claire Wallace
performed in May 2011

In this piece I hid picture postcards of my genitalia in my workplace, as well as other people's workplace. I also sold limited edition pussy postcards at the opening so that others would have the opportunity to hide a pussy in their workplace.

Special thanks to John Zambrano

A Personal Experience

a performance conceived by Julia Claire Wallace
performed by Julia Claire Wallace and Continuum at the Ponderosa
participants: Koomah, Bryce Galbraith, Sway Youngston, Eric Ling, Kris Smith, David Davis, and Jonatan Lopez

This is a performance about art, about sharing things with other people, about creating for eachother, about personal experience.

I created a personal light and sound show for each participant by manually manipulating their visual and auditory senses. The other participants helped by creating sounds that I directed for each personal show.

This piece was reperformed by Julia and Continuum at the Meditation Lounge, using breath as the sound.

Performance Art Workshop, March 2011

I led a Performance Art Workshop at the Jenner House.
Amazing artists came and participated, and they performed some beautiful pieces.
This group has now become CONTINUUM. A collection of Houston performance artists connected in the desire to help and encourage each other's self discovery through performance, as well as a desire to give the gift of performative expression to others. I am currently facilitating the group. It has been amazing.

Performing in Leipzig, Germany

Seeing Self
A performance by Julia Claire Wallace
September 2010
Blauverschiebing No. 3
Galerie KUB
Leipzig, Germany

In this performance I had the audience walk with me in circles around the space. Then, I stepped onto the stage, and completely undressed, exposing my pregnant body. I took my digital camera and went over my entire body, looking at myself through the camera screen. Then, I went out into the crowd and examined individual members of the audience through my camera. I then returned to the stage and examined my body, this time without the camera. I ended the performance by standing in front of the crowd and making eye contact with each member of the audience.

Be Fucking Proud of Yourself

a performance created by Julia Wallace
performed by Jennifer Tyburczy
performed at Come As You Are
DiverseWorks, September 2010

photo by Hilary Sculane

In this performance the audience was given pieces of paper that asked them to write down a sexual act that they have done that they are very proud of. The papers were collected. Volunteers from the audience picked out papers randomly and read them for the crowd. In response, the audience clapped and cheered excitedly.

This performance explores the feeling of pride that often accompanies sex. It will give the audience a chance to be congratulated for a job well done, and perhaps create a kind of intimacy through the sharing of private moments. This piece also subverts any guilt or embarrassment that may come from these private moments, by making them anonymous, and giving the audience a chance to be proud of something, and get attention for something, that they may be uncomfortable announcing any other way.

Very Special Thanks to Jennifer for performing this piece for me!
