About

Elyse Johnson is a queer, mixed American artist based in New York. Johnson uses performance and video to investigate hybrid identity, strategic illegibility, spectacle, and power. Through absurdist gestures and staged out of body experience, Johnson is interested in summoning, confronting, and wielding disembodiment. Johnson is a 2015 recipient of the Wilder Traveling Scholarship Grant and current MFA student at Parsons School of Design.
