Do You Know Your Middle? 

6th July - 21st July 2018
198 Gallery

The title references a phrase repeated by the artist’s mother from a young age, as she would part and braid Joy’s hair. Archiving routines and cultural practices such as these through the pieces, Joy’s work exists to preserve memories from formative years. Each piece documents and retells moments, creating a permanence to past experiences from Joy’s life. The exhibition was accompanied with a playlist curated by the artists mother, which can be listened to here.
