 47 PRESENTS

Play
db Johnson Solo Exhibition
OPENING RECEPTION:
Thursday July, 9 2009
7pm – 10pm

db johnson’s world of plastic transforms 47 into a
cultural heritage centre for the contemporary history of Play.
Johnson explores the condition of adulthood through children’s
make-believe. 

We are invited to meander through the gallery and yard
transformed by toys, earth, sticks, and sand in order to discover the vignettes
he has placed throughout. These stations call for reaction through interaction,
perpetuating the notion of play. 

db johnson lives and works in rural Ontario where he uses the natural materials of his
surroundings in conjunction with objects of consumer culture to create his
interactive installations.

These installations are further explored on db Johnson's blog
