"Sunday Wisdom" | David Johannson 2009-2011
50 Din A3 black & white photo prints
The Sunday Wisdom series is a result of failure.
Only a few have succeeded in capturing and justly conveying the moments that take place every Saturday in clubs all over the world in a few pictures. Maybe Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting" or in a way even Jonas Akerlund's "Smack My Bitch Up" for The Prodigy could be counted as a few very tasteful exceptions.
David Johannson took a different route.
He is not showing anything. Instead, everything we get to see are places of silence, decay and spots of failure. Captured are the entrances of 50 clubs from the outside in Sunday's cruel light, or whatever day it was. We just know that this was "the day after".
Not much is seen of the interior but the experience could be perceived by reading the subjectively selected best-of-disco-lyrics quotations that accompany each print. The combination creates the content that one is searching for while looking at the pieces. Lines like "Something 'bout those little pills, unreal the thrills they yield" (Green Velvet) transport whatever might have been going on behind those doors.
