Joy Gregory @ Pallant House Gallery

26 June 2017 - 15 October 2017

Joy Gregory’sHeroines of Antiquity’ panels are shown here in conjunction with ‘Women Artsists: The Female Gaze’ exhibition currently on show in the De’Longhi print room. This contemporary re-working of 16th Century panels draws upon similar themes discussed in the exhibition and takes the female body as the central subject. Using the camera as her medium, Gregory critiques perceptions of gender, identity and racial difference by drawing upon the history of photography as a means for anthropological classification to illustrate the physiognomic differences in people’s culture and social status. Gregory’s heroines celebrate cultural diversity through the means of storytelling and in reciting mythological tales they advocate the strength of women in history.
