Semblance of repair
Cara Johnson: Semblance of repair
Using materials connected to agriculture and land regeneration, the impossibility of repair is comprehended through acts of mending.
Cara Johnson’s craft-based practice interrogates tensions and narratives connected to the ways land is treated and used through material, intention and invested labour. In 2016 she completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (First Class Hons.) at RMIT University and is a current PhD Candidate and sessional lecturer in RMITs School of Art. Recent solo exhibitions include Understory at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria and Overlay at the Santos Museum of Economic Botany in Adelaide. Cara also exhibits widely in group shows, notably Paper Art at CODA Museum in the Netherlands, Elegy at Gallery Funaki and had work represented in Schmuck 2022 in Munich. Cara has works held in various private and public collections including the National Gallery of Victoria.
