Julia Sinelnikova | Crystal Veil

September 23, 2021 - September 29, 2021
Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery


New York-based artist and performer Julia Sinelnikova participates in CAMHLAB to realize new works, an immersive installation, and public engagements that will provide unique perspectives into their practice. The artist’s new project, Crystal Veil, will be on view Thursday, September 23 through Wednesday, September 29, 2021.

Israel-born, Texas-raised, Russian artist Julia Sinelnikova has been transforming sites around the world into light-activated, iridescent sculptural environments since 2005. Crystal Veil, an installation and performance series, will take shape as part of this CAMHLAB residency. Hand-cut crystalline resin sculptures and sprawling silver hanging elements will take over the Museum’s Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery for the duration of the residency, enveloping it in refracted light patterns. The artist has also developed a new practice titled Sound Drawings during the pandemic lockdown in New York City for much of 2020 and early 2021. In these drawings, Sinelnikova interprets experimental music through larger-than-life-sized drawings. They will incorporate this practice throughout the residency term, creating new works in the space.

On Thursday, September 23, the artist will present a new public performance as her persona “The Oracle,” with a focus on poetry, light, and movement.

This residency serves as a CAMH homecoming as the artist was once a member of the Museum’s renowned Teen Council program.
