Mighty Sarah Johnson

Heuristic hypothesis #3

August 1, 2023 - November 30, 2023

As summer is coming to an end, students are away and most organizations are still closed for another few weeks. However, Sarah's activism and commitment are keeping her busy. In fact, our superheroine is already preparing for her first day at Polytechnique Montréal (!!!), or at least she's already stressing about her back-to-school looks.

In partnership with the Poly-Out committee, Sarah Johnson will put on a handful of performances on the Mount-Royal campus this fall.  She presents herself as a reporter with polymorphous powers, questioning the day-to-day reality of sexual and gender minorities at Polytechnique Montréal. Eyerolls expected.

Embracing that gender role, Sarah Johnson sets out to meet future engineers: those who, in the not-so-distant future, will find themselves in a position to decide and create the infrastructure of our shared spaces.

Sarah Johnson would like to extend her heartfelt thanks to the Poly-Out committee for agreeing to embark in this experiment with her. She would also like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts for its support.

Sarah Johnson  is a young graduate from Rosemère who has just arrived in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. Her valley girl looks bother only those who don't really know her. Barely cartoonish, this facade hides a Super Reporter who is uncompromising towards prejudice by day but willingly fulfills dirty renegade cowgirl fantasies by night.
She draws her audacity from the canonical figures of gutsy art: Erin Brockovich, the Campus Bunny, Cindy Campbell, Isabelle Huppert in the film "Elle", Kimberly Hart, and not forgetting Thelma and Louise, to name but a few. Although she's just learning to cope with her own  body and her new role as a reporter, she's not above attracting attention in order to get what she wants.

Hence why, when faced with the rise of the disguised Conspirationist Servatrice and her boring Rats-Bougris against Lheure Ducompte, Sarah Johnson refuses to "do nothing" and to remain silent. Microphone and pen in hand, she sets out to find true stories.
