JOAN JONAS – Light Time Tales

26 September, 2015

Light Time Tales presents multimedia works that immediately give the sense of Joan Jonas’s unique engagement with the moving image and of the many ways it can be shown and viewed. This ranges from the macro-scale of projections to the smaller world of monitors, presentation on a variety of screen materials and shapes, and uses of light and object to create shadow and mood, to the point of turning the device of media transmission into an art object itself.

Inspired by a trip to India taken in 1976, Mirage (1976/1994/2005) is one of Joan Jonas’s most intricate works. Beginning with a performance staged by the artist in 1976, it has since become a work combining projections, monitors, teaching elements, a stage and various props. It was conceived as a collection of references to different elements and media that the artist has added and/or modified during successive phases. In its complexity, fragmentation and richness, Mirage is one of Jonas’s most significant installations and testifies to the attitudes of an artist who ceaselessly reflects upon and returns to her own work as subject.

Light Time Tales presenta una obra multimedial que da inmediatamente sentido al  compromiso único de Joan Jonas con la imagen en movimiento y las muchas maneras en que se puede mostrar y ver. Desde la escala macro hasta las proyecciones para el más pequeño de los monitores, la presentación ofrece una variedad de materiales y formas, con distintos usos de la luz y diferentes objetos para crear sombra y estado de ánimo.

Inspirado en un viaje a la India de 1976, Mirage (1976/1994/2005) es uno de los trabajos más complejos de Joan Jonas quien inició su carrera en 1976 y se ha convertido desde entonces en un referente de las performances más completas. Concebida como una colección de referencias a diferentes elementos y medios que la artista ha añadido y / o modificado durante  fases sucesivas, Mirage, en su complejidad, fragmentación y riqueza, es una de las instalaciones más importantes de Jonas y da testimonio de la actitud de un artista que reflexiona sin cesar sobre su propio trabajo.
