In the film Decadentia Goyd speaks about her interest, from an early age, in images of the body in art. Her works try to balance between neutral decay of bodies and the meaning of “Decadentia” as a possible phase of social degeneration, where bodies are not just decaying, but are being exploited for the sake of infinite – yet paradoxically – very finite pleasures.
Julija Goyd (b. Vilnius, 1979) lives and works in Berlin. After years working in finance management she gravitated to the worlds of acting, advertising and fashion. Since 2010 she has been working with photography and video.
