Artist and Curator Susannah Wesley, Akimbo's Montreal correspondent, reviews Sarah Anne Johnson's "Field Trip" exhibition at Division Gallery, Montreal, on until January 30th.
"Field Trip is some of Johnson’s best work to date. Bacchanalian youth float down rivers, camp out in the woods, experience hallucinogenics, share amorous exploration, carouse, and party. Despite the Arcadian setting, Johnson’s documentary-style shots don’t exclude the beer cans discarded amongst the flowers and her own interventions on the photographs – including cut-outs, glitter bombs, and cartoonish over-painting of faces – enhance the sublime feeling of the experience with all its beauty and abjection." - Susannah Wesley, 2016
