Artist Statement
Statement by Johanne Sigvardsen, Copenhagen 2012

I'm curios within the sensitive- aesthetic, and the tactility of surfaces. I see my practice between concept and alchemy.
I research, experiment, and speaks in different media. Drawing/the graphic is my main tool, together with photography.

 - I am interested in surfaces: A kind of opaque or/and transparent membrane, where memory and stories reflects, go trough, or is fixed. From the screen, to the walls, and the skin of our bodies.
 - I'm interested in repetitions that points on the body's presence in space.
 -  I'm interested in the small gesture and history, in/as the big - that is, everyday life, where the collective and the personal memory and mythology come to expression.

I encounter something that changes something. Wonder. And then I make a reconstruction of the meeting. Then a new meeting.

It is important for me, that my works include the spatial, where a room can be made for new meaning, so by using different media, there will become a potential space.
To draw is an act of will. I find that drawing is, among other aspects, an analytic mimesis in time and space. I find that drawing is voices among a polyphony of voices. It include other interpretations. Through drawing it is possible to combine semiotics to tell another story.
Photography, because it talks about time. Moment. I can use it as a document, but in a way, where it does not hide its own construction. And I use it as a way to correspond layers, but where the layer will still exist.

I often work with pre-existing texts or images, transferring them, with the intention to reflect about the language to form meaning, the limitation and loss of meaning in the language. Between the collectively and the individuality. I strive that my works have its own usages in meetings, in reflection on concepts of reality.

Where the sensitive, the in-between and stillness also have a strong usage.
