Joanna John

Artist Profile Joanna John

Media: site-specific installation, interactive sculpture, performance, video-art, public space operation, painting, collage, photography. Topics: function of a language, nature of a mind, present reality, sexuality, identity, ego, transformation. Sources: nature and culture, city walks and social changes, 20th-century magic revival, psychedelic experience, traveling and dzogchen meditation. It is the concept of language that fascinates me most. I see it as a magic tool which can create new worlds, generate new ideas and concepts, and it does not matter whether or not they are illusory. The language of different ways of art expression provides an additional opportunity to touch the essence of things, to seize the inexpressible, to introduce the public to sheer experience. It has this incredible potential for transformation, and since I do not believe in any objective me or in present reality, I attempt to make it ever-new. Graduated from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Born in 1983. Live in Poland and Norway.
