Ponderous, I | Stefan Johnson

Ponderous, I (2019)

Transparent balloons, water, toner prints, string


A gift: to be held, to hold, to bear, to bestow.

A body: within, without, amongst, against.

An occasion unlike any other.

I am sorry and I love you.



Stefan Johnson is an emerging artist currently based on the unceded lands of the Squamish, Musqeum, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. His work straddles the lines of photography, sculpture and installation in order to rediscover the objectness of the photographic medium in this new, digitized world. In a similar manner, his work explores the multiplicity of identities that make up the Self, in order to unearth portions of his own, queer, identity.
