The Inertia Variations

Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand


Taking its inspiration from the poem of the same name by John Tottenham, Johanna St Michaels’ The Inertia Variations is a deep, moving, and meaningful insight into the life and work of THE THE's Matt Johnson. This endearingly candid picture of the enigmatic Johnson finds him valiantly exposing his heart on his sleeve as he extracts himself from the clutches of creative inertia, St Michaels turning his hesitation at the artistic crossroads into a compelling work of conceptual art in its own right.
