About

Joy Gregory was born in 1959 in Bicester, Oxfordshire. While responding to political and social concerns, her work incorporates elements of digital technology and print, documenting contemporary life in a story telling manner.

She presented work as part of Iniva’s participation in the 2017 London Art Fair. She has also contributed to Iniva’s 2009 research project ‘La Gomera’ – a project looking at the relationship between language and the environment with particular emphasis on issues around language endangerment. Between 1997-1998, in collaboration with Iniva’s virtual gallery X-space, Joy Gregory’s online project ‘Blonde’ invited visitors to explore the notions of blonde, not just as a hair colour but also as a state of mind. The website featured a wig gallery and a collection of images of favourite and famous blondes.

Her works have been shown in blank100, London (2018), South London Gallery (2017), Venice Biennale (2017), Newlyn Gallery & the Exchange (2017), and Biennale of Sydney (2010).

Gregory attended Manchester Polytechnic where she received a BA in Communication Art & Design in 1984 and the Royal College of Art where she earned a MA in Photography in 1986.

In addition to being an artist and photographer, Gregory actively teaches and lectures.

She lives and works in London.
