Johanna uses sculpture, photography, and the history of art to create a visual conversation about desire. Using a sense of humor and play she distorts imagined value within contemporary culture and art.
These art works are about the structure of object acquisition from the 17th century to present day. From their design, in the materials and their creation, through production, and within delivery methods, the European implementation of brutality and hard power has been coded into art and decorative vessels as an imagery of success and wealth. GUCHI is used by the artist to better navigate the visual language and impact of this brutality through an investigation of utilitarian objecthood, image making, and desire.
