Agnieszka Golda Martin Johnson: Installation Art - Frenzy Episode, Contact, Raising the Dead

Book


Abstract


  • This monograph presents a series of three exhibitions developed collaboratively by Agnieszka Golda and Martin Johnson. It describes a wonderful tracery of not quite recognisable anthropomorphic creatures who inhabit oddly constructed and disjointed spaces. Together Golda and Johnson have utilised crocheted and printed textiles, carved wood and painted aluminium to form strange dwellings, figures and passages.Dr Ruth Fazakerley's research and art practice span Australian contemporary urban public art, painting and sculptural installation. In her essay here she positions Golda and Johnsonís work in a wider context. The distinctive aesthetic force of collaborative process is underpinned by Goldaís discerning scholarship in opening up 'sensography', a terrain that explores both art practice and the emotional, affective resonances it engenders. Professor Diana Wood Conroy, Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong.
