Birdhouse Sky with Food, Birdhouse Mimicking Sunset Sky & Birdhouse Poodle Driving an Egg
Artist Johanna Jackson’s birdhouse is inspired by the shape of a bird, then taking on the shape of a gourd. While Jackson’s personal relationship with birds in their neighborhood comes with ups and downs, they hope that their birdhouse lets viewers feel part of a wider, linked-together universe.
Johanna Jackson (b. 1972, U.S.) lives and works in Portland, Oregon, and Topanga, California. Solo and two-person exhibitions include: “Tennis Elbow” in New York, “bow bow” with Sahar Khoury curated by Tony Cox at CANADA, New York; “What It Means to Learn” with Dana Dart-McLean at Human Resources, Los Angeles; “The Big Fig” at the Portland Museum of Modern Art, Oregon; and “Money on Fire,” a video commission for the Museum of Contemporary Art, LA.
