Foot-to-Face (Julianne Ess) is a multimedia artist and storyteller who uses her art practice to document processes of transformation and cycles of apocalypse. Her art is about doing the visceral, imaginative and embodied work of exploring and healing our fears around change, the unknown, and our capacity for intimacy. She makes zines, collages, mixtapes, and stop-motion animations, and she draws with ink, watercolours, and acrylic paint pens. Originally from Winnipeg, she’s currently based in Toronto and has done a few stints creating and exhibiting in Edinburgh.
Also, she deejays occasionally for private parties, music gigs, and her new podcast Cake For Breakfast Radio, selecting of tracks in favour of the danceable, emotional, playful, and punk-spirited including but not limited to fabulous rock n roll disco 80s and forever ago electro pop post-punk indie new wave and other fire-starters.
