Artist, Curator, Project manager, Digital designer, Researcher

Approved: 16.08.2006

Johana makes work that responds to the physicality of spaces and to the humanity in the inanimate. She has a background in Sculpture and has maintained a fascination with form, applying that to video, intervention, audio and drawing. Johana sometimes harnesses the elements to bring work 'alive' and lend an unpredictability to the fixed and manufactured. Her work stimulates thinking around value and disposability and looks at our impact on urban and rural environments.
