Maria Juliana Byck

Maria Juliana Byck, a social practice artist and experimental filmmaker, conducts place-based investigations to create installations and social interventions. Through workshops, walks, and collective research, she activates different social spheres to encourage cross-cultural and inter-generational exchanges. Maria’s recent creative reuse initiative #projectsemedaki featured designs made of clothing diverted from the landfill transformed by integrating traditional handcrafted textiles. Maria has produced many community-led social justice and media accountability initiatives focusing on environmental and economic issues in Vietnam, Greece, Italy, England, India, Nepal, Taiwan, and United States. Her multi-disciplinary approach expands on the traditions of immersive installation, public space performance, and documentary film.
