Furthering Joy Yamusangie’s interest in illustrating speculative, euphoric spaces, this print questions what happens when memories fade and what efforts do we take to cement legacy and permanence within history.
REMEMBER ME - RODEO KING (2023) is centred around the fear of being forgotten, not only through death but also in life where we are forgotten by past lovers, old friends and those who were once closest to us.
Joy Yamusangie is a visual artist, specialising in illustration. Joy experiments with a range of traditional processes such as drawing, film, printmaking, painting and collaging to produce mixed media pieces.
Yamusangie’s profoundly autobiographical practice amalgamates bold colours with vibrant self portraiture that functions as a distinct act of self appreciation. Family, memory and community sit at the core of the artist’s practice and Yamusangie uses these elements to explore Congolese diaspora from a highly personal perspective. The artist’s exploration of race, identity and representation stem from a place of intimacy as they investigate socio-political issues within the microcosm of their own community.
Their previous projects have included a public art installation commissioned by Tate Collectives, the London Borough of Culture award and the cover for the 2021 Penguin edition of C. L. R. James’ Minty Alley. Joy’s work was also selected for the 2021 RA Summer Show. Joy has collaborated with a number of influential brands including Paul Smith and Gucci.
