Charlotte Johannesson @ Hollybush Gardens
25 May 2018 - 30 June 2018
Swedish artist Charlotte Johannesson trained as a weaver in the 60s and started to make tapestries as art in 1970. Fascinated by the relationship between computer programming and advanced pattern construction on graph paper, Johannesson used the loom to produce pixelated images referencing punk culture and the social-political climate of the time. Her method of working synthesises digital and artisanal techniques to create pieces inhabiting an intervallic and transitory space. Traversing conventional gender roles, the domestic and public, analogue and digital, her practice sits within both social and political registers, as revealed in her exhibition Dust & Shadow …. Space & Time.
