Balancing the act between meticulous planning and the repetitive “mindless” work of rhythm and repetition, Johanna Friedman uses textiles based on photography, video, text and rapid imagery, in order to cease the moment in between pattern (organized) and clutter (chaotic), where we think we can make sense of something but we are not completely sure.
She earned her BFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm Sweden and an MFA in Studio Art from California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
Her work has been shown in numerous art galleries and museums around the world, such as Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen, Norway, Sputnik Auction in Tokyo, Japan and The Swedish Embassy in Washington DC where she was exhibited for the first time in the US. Her work is represented in 3 national collections in Sweden, among them Malmö Museum of Art.
