Jamaican artist Joy Gregory's works from ‘Cinderella Tours Europe’ and ‘Doll’ will be shown at the 9th Daegu Photo Biennale, a unique biennial that focuses solely on photography. This year's theme focuses on the ongoing power of photography. The 9th Daegu Biennale is opening 22nd September in the Daegu Arts Center and runs till November 5th 2023.
Gregory created Doll in 2008 as an extension of ‘The Blonde’. It takes the Barbie doll and shrouds her in the visual tropes of a mythical movie star featuring glimpses of the 1959 Icon. It reflects on the internal fantasies of the imagination when striking a pose for a ‘selfie’.
