press release

Swedish artist and founder of the independent music label Make it Happen, Johanna Billing creates breathtaking, poignant videos and films that address issues of individuality, isolation, public performance, and decisive action (or inaction) in the context of social engagements. For each work, Billing invites people to participate in contrived situations often involving routine, group activities, such as packing and moving anonymous belongings from an apartment, learning to sail, or engaging in dance rehearsals. Through her documentary-style fictions, Billing reveals the ambiguous struggles–individual, social, and political–underlying the human condition in contemporary society.
