Lily Johnson


Lily Johnson’s work is about certain things leaking through. She uses drawing, word play and object making to develop performances, often as a response to a specific, idiosyncratic site.

Worked out in relation to audience, architecture and situation, the performances often involve a costumed figure hiding, moving slowly, not speaking, inhabiting the space.

Lily Johnson graduated from the Sculpture and Environmental Art department at the Glasgow School of Art, lives and works in London, and has shown live works at The Departure Foundation, the ICA, Floating Island, the Tin Tabernacle, the Royal College of Art and Brass.
