Julija Goyd’s C-type print Left Wing — Right Wing is from her photographic series Little World. The series investigates instances where the presentation of narratives can overshadow real circumstances, which in turn jeopardises the continuous process of identity growth. This work was included in the book The Naked & The Nude curated by Peter Weiermair and published in 2013 by Stockmal and Martel. The book features works by some of contemporary art’s best-known names like Wolfgang Tillmanns, Nobuyoshi Araki, Ralth Gibson, Vanessa Beecroft and Jeff Bark. Following the success of the first book, Peter Weiermair curated another edition titled Faces (2015) and Julija’s Goyd work was featured for a second time, contributing among works of Robert Mapplethorpe, Juergen Teller, Anton Corbin, Antoine D’Agata and Pieter Hugo.
