Josh Grey-Jung is an electronic musician, filmmaker, audiovisual artist and educational facilitator. His extended art practice includes field recording, sound design, installation, sculpture, photography, documentary and electronic music.
As a producer and vocalist Josh has written, released and performed music with the alternative hip-hop outfit Strangelove, gaining plays on Radio 1, BBC6 Music and NTS as well as performing at venues across the UK and Europe.
In 2021 Josh shot and edited a short portrait film of the artist and musician Rubie Green, paralleling their experience of isolation under new lockdown measures with their experience of marginalisation as a trans non-binary person. Rubie was premiered in Sonic Scope Journal with an accompanying essay which draws on queer studies to challenge normative models of ‘success’ and ‘failure,’ and posits lockdown as a radical, ‘queer’ alternative to the ‘normality’ of day-to-day life in a heteronormative capitalist society.
Josh's installation works have been exhibited in spaces around the world. In 2019 The Reservoir, his A/V installation exploring memory, motherhood and inherited trauma, was awarded the Victor Kuell Prize for innovation after exhibiting at the London Group Open Show. In 2018 his work Edges of an Urbanised River, a site-specific A/V installation created in collaboration with local video artist Baismapayam Saha, was shown at TransArts Festival in Kolkata, India. The same year, working alongside videographer and photographer Buster Grey-Jung, he co-created Heavier than Air which was showcased at the Palace Arts Festival in Piotrowice Nyskie, Poland. In 2017, Josh collaborated with poet Jack Miguel and video artist Taz Tron Delix to create the score and sound design for The Turning of Leaves, a multichannel A/V installation exploring masculinity amidst inherited narratives of power, violence and invulnerability. This piece was exhibited at the Union Chapel in London.
