Steph Joyce is an artist, researcher and poetic practitioner, gathering moss and sewing soft places to land. For the next few months with ︎︎︎ Rupert’s alternative education programme, they’ll be playing, moving, and attending to the basics while tracing embodiments of desire, hope and grief in relation to eels, unknowability, and conviviality.
In general, their practice tends towards situational gatherings and site-specific installations with performative, video, and sculptural elements. Thinking-with embodied research methods, theories of affect and collective practices is important to them.
With Theresa Zwerschke, they co-host ︎︎︎ Catwings, an initiative for relational, situational and performative art and research. At the moment, Catwings is working towards the good enough host: pragmatic tools for idealistic practices with ︎︎︎ the School of Commons.
Steph is part of the ︎︎︎ Graduate School for Moving Image at the Kunsthochschule in Kassel. They studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Prior to this, they apprenticed on a vegetable farm with a community-supported agriculture model and with a herbalist in rural North America.
