The Art of Repetition

Michael Johansson is fascinated by flea markets. Walking around to find doubles of seemingly unique, though often useless, objects he has already purchased at another flea market, is not only an inquisitive activity for him but part of his working process. The rules compelling him in selecting things at flea markets are also central to his art practice. Engaging directly with these objects, manipulating them, juxtaposing them against each other or representing them in a new context is his method of work.
