EXHIBITION
 
Todd Johnson – Treading Water
 
SomoS is pleased to present the exhibition “Treading water” by Australian artist Todd Reece Johnson, taking place between February 16 – 24 2018.
 
Johnson employs inventive analogue techniques to investigate the malleability of the photographic image. The photographs in this series have been taken along Berlin’s various canals and lakes; later the negatives are submerged in the water itself. This ongoing process is an attempt to collaborate with place, by allowing elements of the environment to steer the photographic inscription process. What results is a highly unpredictable visual arrangement that fits somewhere between intention and chance.
 
Opening reception: Thursday, February 15 2018, 6-9pm
Open February 16 – 24, Tue-Sa, 2-7pm
