Jasmine Johnson talks about Love


Jasmine Johnson’s commission for Annotations II continues to explore an ongoing interest in love addiction, this time in relation to physical isolation. Johnson’s drawing residency explores the ordeal of being alone in the context of the COVID 19 pandemic; messages and still-life photographs from queer people living in cities around the world inform the drawings. Through the long study of their environments as well as of her own, Johnson explores the theatrics and banality of aloneness and what happens to our surroundings when love, addiction and isolation are navigated through elected objects.
