Juno Calypso

b. 1989, London UK

Juno Calypso is a London-based artist working with photography, video and installation. Juno is a 2012 graduate of the BA Photography course at LCC, where she began a series of staged self-portraits, disguised as a fictional character named Joyce. Confining herself to rented bedrooms and honeymoon suites, Calypso performs solitary studies into rituals of seduction and the laboured construction of femininity.

In 2012, Juno’s degree show series was awarded both the Hotshoe Portfolio Award and the Michael Wilson Photographic Prize. In 2013 The Catlin Art Guide featured Juno as one of 40 of the most promising new artists in the UK, subsequently shortlisting her for the 2013 Catlin Art Prize, where she was awarded the Visitor Vote Prize. Juno has since exhibited internationally with group shows in London, Switzerland, Mexico and New York. Her work has been featured in The Guardian, Dazed & Confused, i-D, VICE, The Sunday Times, and The Huffington Post amongst others.
