ARTIST STATEMENT
"I have been loved," she said, "by something strange, and it has forgotten me."
                                                                                                 —Djuna Barnes

I am left here trying to divorce myself from a void and instead integrate belligerent dogs, clean pools, movie tropes, being held, tricky games, school corridors, and feral rabbits with the great quiet. It is futile to design a neighborhood that is kind and somehow still a place where teeth fall out of heads. But for some reason I am still building small homes for tired ghosts.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Lexi Johnson grew up, read the Animorphs series, graduated with her BFA and is now trying to reconcile a desire to build spaces and also exist in none. She should know better.
