Britta Johnson

The Hover
April 5 – 27, 2012
Opening: First Thursday, April 5, 6 – 8 PM

Gallery4Culture will feature a solo exhibition by multimedia installation artist Britta Johnson during the month of April. The Hover is a series of looping, stop-motion animated videos shot in different outdoor locations in Washington State. The projections vary in size (mural scale to intimate) and manner of display. Some of the videos place the viewer in an unusual or precarious relationship with the imagery; all share a common theme of natural processes (bubbling, shedding, accreting, etc.) happening in an unnatural or uncommon way. The artist works with themes of omniscience, omnipresence, immortality, what is fleeting, what is contained, what is regular, what is irregular, what is human, and what is natural.

The production of this series was supported with funding from Seattle’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, Artist Trust, and Centrum.
