Do You Know Your Middle? is Joy Miessi’s first ever solo exhibition, featuring new mixed media works by the artist. The title references a phrase repeated by the artist’s mother from a young age, as she would part and braid Miessi’s hair. Archiving routines and cultural practices such as these through the pieces, Miessi’s work exists to preserve memories from formative years. Each piece documents and retells moments, creating a permanence to past experiences from Miessi’s life.

Joy Miessi is an artist based in London. Joy translates moments, conversations, feelings and intimate thoughts into visual pieces for reflection. Inspired by shop fronts in Kinshasa to punk posters in Camden, Joy Miessi takes inspiration from everyday life. Sociopolitical themes are reoccurring in Joy’s present work and are translated through abstract shapes, figures and writing.
