Introducing SomoS Artist-in-Residence Todd Reece Johnson
photographer / photography lecturer
01.12.2017 - 01.12.2018
SomoS is pleased to welcome Australian artist and university lecturer Todd Reece Johnson who will join us for a three month project-based Artist Residency, beginning December 2017.
Johnson employs inventive analogue techniques to investigate the malleability of the photographic image. In Berlin, he will produce and present a photographic project and exhibition, “Fossils.”
The photographs in this series will be taken around Berlin’s urban landscape; then later buried there. This ongoing process is an attempt to collaborate with place, by allowing elements of the landscape to more overtly steer the photographic inscription process. What results will be a highly unpredictable visual arrangement that fits somewhere between intention and chance.
While in Berlin, Todd Johnson also took part in the group show Materialist Photography, December 2017 at Jarvis Dooney Galerie in Berlin Mitte.
SomoS’ Artist-in-Residence Program offers cultivated, supportive and stimulating surroundings to international visiting artists, curators, researchers and academics wishing to realize an artistic project in Berlin. The residency, normally completed within three months, is focused on production, experience, critical discourse, networking, and local participation. Staying at SomoS, participants become a part of a thriving artistic community with an active exhibition and event program and will easily and swiftly become well-acquainted with the creative, networked city that is Berlin.
