Black Sun
— Johanna Jaeger
6th – 15th October 2017

For Playground London, Johanna Jaeger has developed a site-specific installation that will be visible after sunset. Adapting the classical form of lightbox presentation, Playground's shop size windows will be lit from behind and carry an image that turns the space into an uncanny sight: a sun, shining at night. black sun draws from Jaeger's interest in the conditions of photography, with light as its core element. Showing the negative of an image taken during daytime at night, the inversion of the image mirrors the dichotomy of daylight and darkness.
