Johanna Arco studied Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Her practice develops around the question; how can the boundaries of the embodied Self be located and stretched? The research frequently culminates into sculpture/ video installations.

High up in the Austrian mountains an announcement in the local radio marks the beginning of a journey. From a bird's-eye view, a landscape covered in snow and silence unfolds itself in front of the viewer. Motivated by the strong wish of connecting with wildlife, a woman runs through the forest while a large group of deer are fleeing from her. In the ongoing prance, the borders of human and animal territory are being defined by the moving of in and out.
