Johanna Thompson is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto, ON. She holds an MFA from York University and a BFA in photography from NSCAD University.

My work explores memory that is felt in the body and considers the ways the past is carried with us into the future. I employ craft techniques to engage with remembered and forgotten histories in an immediate, haptic way. My practice attends to the sensorial and ephemeral nature of memory, and seeks to form tactile and emotional connections with the past.
