Dreaming About Tomorrow - Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck
What does it mean to dream about tomorrow?
This new title articulates how dreaming about tomorrow can be an act of bravery. The publication follows an exhibition of the same title, which took place at Nidi Gallery (Tokyo) in October 2022. The exhibition and publication feature recent paintings, some in oil, others using natural pigments, including some created from plants grown in the artist's allotment. Photographs from Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck's ongoing series Analog Diary and unique collaborative works with ceramic designer Olivia Fiddes (UK) and weaver Pauline Simonet (France), as well as The Gardening Drawing Club and the Seed Library set up at Nidi Gallery are also featured in this publication.
This publication features a new essay by PhD holder and Oslo University-based researcher Veronika Muchitsch as a written response to the project.
