II see (and other ways of saying I see what you mean)
is an installation referring to a historic fact: at the end of the 17th century, in New France (present-day Canada), playing cards were used as payment currency. At that time, to compensate for the rarity of coins, the absence of printing as well as that of paper, ordinary playing cards, either whole or cut in two or four, with the word “good” written on their reverse acted as money. This financial instrument demonstrated the first appearance of French and North American fiduciary money. It also marked the rise of falsifications of currencies.

At the crossroads of installation, writing and performance, the practice of Julie Sas arranges spaces and situations around games of meaning, norms and identities that demonstrate a tension with linguistic or social data. Her recent works feature objects and bodies engaged in codified situations, particularly concerning the production of public discourses, forms of self-representation and quotation exercises. Through games of setbacks and tilting of values, they engage in processes of disembodiment, artificiality and desubjectivation that are part of a reflection on issues of identity and representation.
