Sarah Anne Johnson: Mid-Career Survey at CAM

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 28, 2015

WONDERLAND

 

Free First Friday & Public Opening

Friday, February 6

6:00 - 10:00

 

 

This mid- career survey of Sarah Anne Johnson, titled WONDERLAND, bring together five major bodies of work by the artist.   This exhibition was curated by Steven Matijcio of the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, and is the first time such an exhibition has been organized for the artist.  Johnson’s work is celebrated for being both playful and provocative.  The exhibition will include photographs, as well as installations and performance.

 

Johnson . . . pointedly bridges the real and the imagined; factual and fictive; lived and desired.  She works from a bravely personal perspective that reflects her growing concerns for the world, combined with the pursuit of a utopian place that remains tantalizingly out of reach. At every step Johnson attempts to nudge reality closer to her ideals, supplementing quixotic photographs with humble dioramas, Sculpey figurines, painterly interludes, handcrafted doll-houses, and a dizzying array of modifications performed upon the photograph itself.          - CAM
