Joan Jonas : I want to live in the country (and other romances) by Susan Morgan( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Jonas approaches video as a drawing tool, a mirror, and a framing device. Since 1968, she has used video and performance to explore ways of seeing, the rhythms of ritual, and the archetypal authority of objects and gestures. With her influential 1976 work, I Want to Live in the Country (And Other Romances) Jonas nimbly structures an elliptical narrative that unmistakably establishes her voice and visual lexicon. I Want to Live in the Country features two locations--the untamed landscape of Nova Scotia and a television studio in New York City--as it examines themes of loss, displacement, time, and memory through still life compositions and Super-8 footage. Jonas creates a meditation of frames within frames, monitors within monitors, overlaid with poetic musings--a murmured story of the unconscious. Jonas's influences have included the writing of Samuel Beckett, the films of Yasujiro Ozu, Japanese Noh theater, and the work of John Cage. Stripped down to intimate, indelible gestures, I Want to Live in the Country (And Other Romances) explores a Beckettian dilemma: "I am both the observer and the object that I observe. Which of the two is the real 'I'?" In this richly illustrated Afterall book, Susan Morgan examines the emergence of Jonas's original work from this synthesis of influences and ideas

Joan Jonas : they come to us without a word by Paul Ha( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Joan Jonas: They Come to Us without a Word' documents Jonas's project for the United States Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale, an expansive installation that incrporates multiple components, included projected videos, drawings, and objects. Each section of the pavilion represents a particular creature (bees, fish), object (mirror), force (wind), or place (homeroom). Recited fragments of ghost stories sourced from the oral tradition of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, form a continuous narrative linking one room to the next. As Jonas says, 'We are haunted, the rooms are haunted.' Designed with Jonas's close collaboration, this fully illustrated book features an extensive collection of images selected by the artist, including stills, drawings, and photographs, that not only document this ambitious and important new work but form an integral part of the presentation and experience of 'They Come to Us without a Word'. Also included are Jonas's poetic notes on her process and major new texts from ann Reynolds and Marina Warner as well as an interview with the artist by Ingrid Schaffner." -- Publisher

"New media art shares an important trait with all other genres: it builds upon the work that precedes it. By studying the work of other artists and the progression of their careers, the next generation builds and expands upon the field of new media art. The ground-breaking artists included in ASPECT Volume 8: Early Works have had an undeniable impact on the creative practice of artists of all media worldwide, new media in particular. The early works of these artists are signposts indicating the goals and interests that are pervasive throughout their careers. As always, we are very excited to bring these works to you, and are particularly grateful to the artists and commentators for their generosity"--Publisher's web site
