Josiane M. H. Pozi

Josiane M.H Pozi (b. 1998, London) is a visual artist and filmmaker based in London. Pozi creates affecting video works as moments of emotional truth and experience. They are truly of and for the digital age, holding our technologised present up to the light, marvelling in all its warmth, its grime, its stillness. Pozi explores life’s most mundane moments and presents them in a way that takea on greater meaning: her raw, lo-fi depictions of simple exchanges with her father or a night drinking with friends lay bare feelings of separation, loneliness, and anxiety brought to the surface in a world obsessed with capturing every second on our phones. 

While Pozi often appears on camera, visually or audibly, it is her connection to the various subjects who share her screen that creates frisson in the absence of traditional cinema’s “coherent narrative,” instead forming a loose portrait of the artist in close relations. Her vignettes describe a kind of social diegesis unfolding in real time for the auteur. Without marking a strict dichotomy between authenticity and artifice, Pozi’s inversion of video and experience is a precise post-cinematic perspective on the hypertrophied feedback loop of performativity that haunts the contemporary period. 

Pozi received a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths University (2021).
