Juliana Zepka is a French-Brazilian artist. She lives and works in Paris.

Her work explores the spectral and memorial dimensions of the image and the archive in the context of their policies of reproduction, digitalisation and restitution. In 2022, after finishing her degree at the Sandberg Institute (Amsterdam), she wrote a manifesto on the anarchive as keystone of her artistic research: the study of the archive through its blank pages, through the invisible, the fictional, the anonymous, the forgotten. She also works on request to create visual content (graphics, web design, video) for artists, cultural institutions and associations.

Destination Unknown 2023 collective show at the Former Philips Factory, Roermond (NL).

Gebouw E : The Boiler House is an assemblage of archival material collected at the former Philips factory in Roermond, The Netherlands. The archive created is a testimony of the time spent during a 3 month residency researching whether energy is still present on an industrial site long after its activity had been shut down, as an archaeological gesture of patience and attention.

The project consists in a polyphonic sound installation made from 16 field recordings mapping the sounds inside the remaining pipe installation of the former Boiler Room and a publication sharing memories and impressions on light, sounds and architectural features of the building as a ghost factory.

Field recordings and sound piece composed, mastered and mapped in collaboration with sound artist Thibault Mechler.
