Jennifer Johnson is a Philadelphia-based sculptor who works with ceramics and fibers, but also electronics, video, and performance, to create installations. She is interested in the production of history and focuses on how architecture reveals lived experiences.
The installation “An Archive of Desire: Architecture as Narrator” is now on view at Glen Foerd on the Delaware in Philadelphia. “The Architecture of Remembering,” has been exhibited in Denmark (2017), in the Woodmere Annual (Philadelphia, 2018) and The Anderson Center (Red Wing MN, 2019). “Let me clear up a few things,” (Temple Contemporary, 2016) recreated an elaborate mid-century domestic scene centered on a 9 hour video, “Puzzle,” showing a pair of hands putting the pieces together. “The Men’s Room” about the Crane building was installed at the Crane Arts in 2019. Currently, she is working an installation about Chantal Ackerman's 1975 film “Jeanne Dielman....” and beginning a new project based on Philadelphia's Park Towne Place.
