Sarah Anne Johnson Artist Talk at Aperture
Black Out Copy by Sarah Anne Johnson
Tomorrow evening photographer Sarah Anne Johnson will give an artist’s talk at Aperture bookstore and gallery as part of the Parsons lecture series. Johnson’s work integrates multiple mediums including sculptural and performance elements along with painting and printmaking to create her images. Tree Planting, a series of photographs by Johnson recently featured in Guggenheim group show, Haunted, exemplifies the artist’s multi-media approach to photography and to narrative. In sixty five images the artist depicts a summer spent planting trees in de-forrested Manitoba, a common Canadian rite of passage. Moving between photographs documenting the physical lived experience and photographed scenes of small scale models reenacting moments that happened in real life, the work builds apon and evolves the use of sets, props and theater in photography. Johnson is represented by the Julie Saul gallery in New York and Stephen Bulger gallery in Toronto.
