Emily Joy

The Logic of the Supplement (2015)

Emily Joy’s practice examines why and how experience is mediated by the imperfect copies of memory, language and image and is particularly concerned with trace (grammatical, photographic or the cast) in relation to memory. 

Joy explores the boundaries of the self through investigations into the limitations of the physical body, through confrontation with material mass, through personal and technical failure and through tightly controlled making methodologies including highly restricted drawing systems.
Absurd Labour (2016)

A three day piece, Absurd Labour presents the making, exhibiting and dissolution of a body of work.
Participatory pieces connected to ideas of excess and lack will be made in the gallery with public assistance and will be viewed in static form for one day after which it will be dissolved in a closing performance piece during which members of the public will be given an element from the exhibition.
