Mapping the Stage: Micah Danges and James Johnson
September 17, 2016 – January 7, 2017
Informed in part by the formal and perceptual qualities of Fra Angelico’s fifteenth-century painting, The Healing of Justinian by Saint Cosmas and Saint Damian, Micah Danges and James Johnson’s window-front installation investigates new ways of making work with tangible, non-photographic materials and celebrates the power of inanimate objects. The project expands Danges’ and Johnson’s mutual interest in the pre-photographic representation of temporality in Renaissance painting, the relationship between images and objects – notably, the point at which the physical world ends and the image begins – and the unconventional use of photographic materials, processes and ideas.
