For over the past two decades, Joy Episalla forms a personal archaeology that pushes photography and the moving image into the territory of sculpture, bearing witness to time and history through natural phenomena and through the de/constructions of things in the world. While engaging a queer/feminist perspective, she is interested in creating open-ended situations that prompt the viewer to slow down and take in the moment — in all its complexity and seeming contradictions.  

She lives and works in NYC.
