Self Storage, Ryan Johnson's first exhibition with The Suzanne Geiss Company, features a structured installation of representational sculptures made from a variety of materials including wood, medical casting tape and sheet metal. Presented as a fictional self-storage unit, Johnson aims to blur the distinctions between the real and the imagined by conjuring a hallucinatory space where anxieties become materialized as furniture, multi-tasking figures sprout extra limbs and bicycles steer their riders. Informed by a sense of precarity and ambient instability, Johnson's sculptures foreground the liminal nature of storage, focusing on themes of transition and fundamental life decisions about relationships, work, and family. Self Storage will be on view until December 15, 2012 at The Suzanne Geiss Company, 75 Grand Street, New York, New York
