Joan Jonas — Reanimation



Joan Jonas

Past: April 27 → May 31, 2013

Joan Jonas is one of the pioneers of performance and video. Jonas’s 40-year body of work has been and continues to be internationally influential. This is Joan Jonas’s third solo exhibition at the Galerie Yvon Lambert in Paris, following those at Galerie Yvon Lambert New York in 2005, 2007, and 2010.

For this exhibition, Jonas presents Reanimation II, which is a variation of a project she began to develop in 2010 and was shown for the first time in its finished form at Documenta (13), Kassel, in 2012 in a pre-fabricated house in the Karlsaue Park. Jonas had been working on this project for two years prior, beginning in 2010. The entire work is based on the novel Under the Glacier by Icelandic writer Halldór Laxness, published in the 1960s. As Jonas says, the book “is partly an homage to spiritual aspects of nature, focusing on a particular glacier, but as glaciers are now melting the work Reanimation reflects this present-day situation.”
