Julie Upmeyer is artist and initiator based in Istanbul working with everyday materials and space: paper, plastic, food, the internet, her home, the street. Her curiosity lead to work with Res Artis, the international network of artist residencies, and a three-year nomadic life - working in India, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands and Greece.
Settling in Istanbul, she initiated Caravansarai, an independent project space and meeting point, an emerging production space, artist-in-residence program and an open exploration of the interactive possibilities of food, space and the internet. caravansarai.info
