Joan Jonas : I want to live in the country (and other romances) by Susan Morgan( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 168 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

"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
