William Joys: A One Man Show
6 & 7 Sept 2019, 7pm


Returning from Kunsthalle Münster to London’s Kunstraum for two nights only, William Joys: A One Man Show is a cabaret in which Joys personifies a range of objects. Featuring a sequence of compositions:
 
The first ‘I am a lighthouse’ presents Joys as an architectural lover which not only protects you but pushes you away…
 
The second, ‘Im ready for the world’ In which Joys channels a door, behind which is a woman with a problem: she’s never heard her doorbell before…
 
Penultimately ‘The Whitest Walls in Town’ where Joys, through adorning the cladding of a residential skyscraper, reveals the aspirations and fears of a life in the penthouse apartment…
 
And conclusively with ‘Jack on the Track’ from which Joys unravels the deadly twists and turns of the track on which jack commutes to the city. Whilst spearheading forward as the train itself…
 
   .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .
 
William Joys (Born 1989 lives and works in London) is a graduate from the BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths (2011) and the MA in performance at the Glasgow school of Art (2018). He is a founding member of Villa Design Group, exhibiting internationally, among others at MIT List Centre, Cambridge and MUMOK, Vienna. Since 2017 his solo performances include: ‘William Joys: A One Man Show’ for Christiane Blattmann’s show  at Kunsthalle Muenster; ‘Whitest Walls in Town’, PerformanceClub at Raven Row, London; ‘That perfect Italian time’, Thankyou very much residency, The Modern Institute, Glasgow; and ‘I’m Just a Dumb Waiter, David Dale Dionysia’, David Dale gallery, Glasgow.
