Artist Talk: Charlotte Johannesson
The work of Charlotte Johannesson (b.1943, Sweden) represents a synthesis between the artisanal and the digital. Over the past 50 years, she has explored the formal and conceptual connections between the craft technology of the loom and the digital technology of computer programming. From the outset, Johannesson saw ‘great synchronicity between the two machines’ that became her tools for making images.
On the occasion of her survey exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary which brings together textiles, digital graphics, plotter prints, paintings and screenprints made over the past 50 years, Charlotte Johannesson sat down with us to discuss her life and work.
