ARTIST TALK: JUNO CALYPSO

Sat 3rd June
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Saturday, June 3, 2017

In 2011, after two decades of taking pictures of herself in private, Juno began a series of self-portraits in which she staged herself as a fictional character named Joyce.

Without knowing how to explain what she was doing at the time, she used her grandmothers’ houses, or rented bedrooms online, and took pictures of herself while the hosts were asleep. Once alone she used Joyce to reenact the private underlife of a woman consumed by the laboured construct of femininity, carried out to the point of ritualised absurdity.

In this talk Juno will discuss her photographic practice and staged self-portraits, where she enacts solitary moments of preparation and anticipation with her alter ego.
