Joan Jonas’ work is inhabited by a multitude of human and non-human creatures, which traverse her drawings, videos, and performances in a plurality of gestures and configurations. Assembled in idiosyncratic, non-narrative manners, these animal selves propose new temporal conventions and ways of being in the world. Filipa Ramos’ (de)Tour will be a journey across the creatures Joan Jonas summons and collaborates with through her work.
This Exhibition (de)Tour is part of the Education and Public Programme of Joan Jonas: They Come to Us without a Word.
