Join us for the UK premiere of Joan Jonas’s multi-layered performance exploring the poetics and ecology of ocean life

Combining live drawing, readings and film projection, Moving Off the Land. Oceans – Sketches and Notes draws on literary and mythological references as well as the artist’s own collection of sketches and notes. This unmissable performance is one element of an ambitious multi-part programme devoted to Joan Jonas’s pioneering work in performance, video and installation which includes a major exhibition in the Level 2 galleries in the Blavatnik Building.
