J Davies is a 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. 

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.
