‘What’s yours is mine, but you don’t know it…’
An Exhibition by Johanna Leech at C H R C H Project Space
Saturday, November 23rd, 2pm – 5pm
Johanna Leech invites you to vote for your favorite NY collection…
For the past three weeks Belfast-based artist Johanna Leech has been building relationships with local residents, documenting everyday collections, and exploring the unusual side of Ulster County and NY. She has created a mini-museum at CHRCH project space featuring items of local interest. Her exhibit includes a series of photographs, objects, stories and drawings inspired by local places, stories and collections.
Leech’s practice combines influences from travel, social situations, human interactions, iconography, myths, legends and museum categorization. She collects local stories, histories, grandmother’s tales, bedtime stories, hearsay and sagas. She takes photographs, gathers- images, objects, books, icons, scribbles, and objects from the street. These collections can become projections, constructions, installations, photomontages, theatrical/live events and drawings.
This residency is supported by a grant from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
