A fun and rewarding project, WhoIsJohnny
By parodying mass media by exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, Ramstedt makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they seem typical by-products of superabundance and marketing.
Works are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, clichés and bad jokes. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image.
