Faint Echoes: Pia Johnson

9 Jul 2022 - 17 Sep 2022

Pia Johnson is known for her distinctive portraiture and performance photography. For a new exhibition at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, the artist turns to the self as subject matter, employing self-portraiture to examine transcultural identity, place, memory and belonging. Pia’s line of inquiry centres on the histories of representation of the Eurasian female body in domestic settings, and Faint Echoes forms part of the artist’s ongoing considerations of post-colonial and feminist narratives in contemporary Australia as a woman of Chinese and Italian-Australian descent.

Pia Johnson lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung Country. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the 10th Asia Pacific Triennial at the Queensland Art Gallery, Ballarat International Foto Biennale, National Portrait Gallery, the Castlemaine State Arts Festival, Studio Kura, Japan, and the Pingyao International Photography Festival, China.

Pia Johnson would like to acknowledge the support from BLINDSIDE and the National Trust of Victoria, and Punctum Inc for the opportunity to create new work in regional Victorian artist residency programs
