Julie Rrap is a trickster who uses her own body in photos, videos and sculpture. Victoria Lynn's text explores how Julie Rrap 'discloses' the human body, and unravel the ways in which it has been represented in art and elsewhere. For the most part, Rrap has used her own body in photographs, videos and sculptures. This has not simply been a documentation of the female form. This is a performing body, 'one that enacts various postures through shadow play, masquerade, mirror and mime.

Rrap's representation of the body is never comfortable. Her human figures are often dissected into parts, distorted, and at times squeezed into the stance of the artist's muse.

Julie Rrap is a leading Australian artist depicting the female form through her own body. Rrap combines an intellectual framework with a sense of wit and works in sculpture, installation, photography and video in consistently compelling ways.

Author Victoria Lynn explores Rrap's role as 'the trickster' in her work, how she uses the 'body double', and how she oversteps the limits of bodily representation.
