Leahlani Johnson is a Sydney based artist whose practice investigates the paradoxical nature of time within the installation environment, allowing time to be reinterpreted from a linear formation into a more malleable substance. Working across the disciplines of painting, drawing, ceramics, installation, floristry and the moving image, Leahlani employs disparate materials to reveal opposing durational qualities of stillness, temporality and flux. With divergent concepts of time being further examined through the process of making in the work and in the final form an exhibition may take. With labor intensive and site-specific interventions lasting only briefly and exhibition lengths becoming extended or condensed in size.
Leahlani Johnson used her time at Bundanon to develop a new mixed media installation work titled ‘However late it may seem’, that explores the process of waiting. The new work was exhibition at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, Katoomba, from August-October 2017.
