Leah Collins of CBC Arts interviews gallery artist Sarah Anne Johnson on her current exhibition "Field Trip" on at Division Gallery, Montreal, until January 30th, 2016.

"It was my first taste of freedom — camping with friends and like-minded community. The beautiful setting, the music. It was an important part of my upbringing, I guess."
For Field Trip, Johnson went back to music festival campgrounds and parking lots around North America, and while the exact locations aren't named, British Columbia features prominently. "The last two years, I'd go as an outsider — and feel like an outsider too," Johnson says. "I'm a little older, I'm not there with friends, I'm not in the scene," she explains. - Leah Collins, 2015
