J Davies is multidisciplinary takataapui artist respectfully doing mahi on stolen lands of The Kulin Nation in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia).
Through ongoing archiving of contemporary queer existence in the city of Naarm, J cultivates connection to community and culture whilst considering themes of identity, intimacy and neurodiversity.

With a uniquely personal perspective; J documents their own life behind-closed-doors and invites their audience and collaborators to collectively contemplate the ways in which we view and value intimacy within our lives.

J graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Art from The Victorian College of The Arts in 2017 and has been experimenting with photography since the mid 2000’s.

In 2021 J was diagnosed with a processing disorder that shed light on their difficulty with timelines and distinguishing dreams from memories. In 2022 J published their first book Half of My Whole Life Was Just a Dream which explores the connectedness of consciousness and subconsciousness.
