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. The performance builds upon an earlier iteration of the work first presented as part of TBA21–Academy’s Convening #2 in Kochi, India (2016).
Joan Jonas: Moving Off the Land. Oceans – Sketches and Notes is commissioned by TBA21–Academy, London and presented in collaboration with Tate Modern.
