Joy Zhou (AU/CN)


Joy Zhou

Born 2000, Fujian, China
Lives and works Melbourne, Australia

Joy Zhou is a trans-disciplinary artist and design practitioner based in naarm/melbourne. Their practice generates from embodied experiences and communicates complex intersectional relations. Expanding from their background in interior design, Joy works with immediate situations, including sonic, graphic, performative, spatial and socially-engaged practices. They often interrogate norms with queering gestures and aim to amplify unnoticed existence in everyday life. These gestures unfold as encounters and events, that draw upon the people, their interrelation with space, and the overlapping contexts.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
