Johanna Hoffsten – builds alternative worlds and lets fictional characters rebel. By presenting what at first glance may seem like innocent play, she hopes to expose society’s absurdities. The playfulness at first makes the viewer lower the guard before seeing what is actually going on. Johanna questions what her characters do, and hopes that we begin to reflect on – and question – our society and our own absurd identities. She lets the idea choose the material and uses a range of different techniques, often painting but also sculpture, stop motion film and photography.
