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.

Linger, exhibited at Park Towne Place (2022), considered how we make sense out of the rapid change going on in Philadelphia now and in the 1950s.  An Archive of Desire on view at Glen Foerd on the Delaware in Philadelphia (2020/21- continuing) tells a broader story of the house's history from different perspectives. The Architecture of Remembering exhibited in Denmark (2017), in the Woodmere Annual (Philadelphia, 2018) and The Anderson Center (Red Wing MN, 2019), deconstructs Himmel House as a memorial to Nina Hole. Let me clear up a few things, (Temple Contemporary, 2016) recreated a mid-century domestic scene to explore the women of that era. The Men’s Room installed at the Crane Arts in 2019 explored how the Crane Company looked from the building's bathroom. Her current project, My Powelton Village, is a collection of mosaics about the neighborhood's architecture, the people who have lived there and how everything fits together.
