Moving Off the Land / Joan Jonas & María Huld Markan í Tjarnarbíói

Sequences myndlistarhátíð kynnir með stolti og ánægju einstakan viðburð eftir bandarísku myndlistarkonuna Joan Jonas, í samstarfi við íslenska tónskáldið Maríu Huld Markan.

Viðburðurinn verður haldinn í Tjarnarbíói þann 8. október klukkan 20.00.

Hægt er að nálgast miða hér á www.tix.is

Auk verks síns í Tjarnarbíó opnar Jonas, Does the Mirror Make the Picture, yfirgripsmikla sýningu í Nýlistasafninu á úrval verka frá mismunandi tímabilum ferils hennar.

Sýning Jonas í Nýlistasafninu opnar föstudaginn 6. október á fyrsta degi hátíðarinnar og stendur til 10. desember 2017.

Jonas (f. 1936, New York) er frumkvöðull á sviði vídeólistar. Síðan á sjötta áratugnum hefur hún skapað nýstárleg verk í ólíkum miðlum sem rannsaka tímatengt skipulag og pólitískt mikilvægi áhorfandans. Í verkum sínum blandar Jonas saman ólíkum miðlum og listformum, líkt og leikhúsi, dansi, hljóði, texta, teikningum, skúlptúr, vídeó og myndvörpun. Í nýrri vídeóverkum, gjörningum og innsetningum hefur Jonas gjarnan starfað með tónlistarmönnum og dönsurum, ásamt því að leita til bókmennta og goðsagna í marglaga rannsóknarvinnu sinni.

María Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir (f. 1980) fiðluleikari og tónskáld hefur farið um víðan völl tónlistarinnar. Hún útskrifaðist frá Tónlistarskólanum í Reykjavík árið 2000 og frá Listaháskóla Íslands með BA-gráðu í tónsmíðum árið 2007. Auk þess að sinna tónsmíðum hefur María Huld verið meðlimur í hljómsveitinni amiinu til margra ára og með henni ferðast heimshorna á milli og flutt tónlist í ýmsum myndum.

Joan Jonas er jafnframt heiðurslistamaður Sequences VIII sem fer fram í áttunda sinn víðsvegar um Reykjavík.

Sequences myndlistarhátíð er tíu daga tvíæringur sem haldin er í Reykjavík dagana 6.–15. október 2017. Hún er nú haldin í 8. skipti en markmið hátíðarinnar er að sýna framsækna myndlist með áherslu á tímatengda miðla; gjörninga, hljóðverk, vídeólist og myndlist í almenningsrými.

Sýningarstjóri Sequences VIII er Margot Norton, sýningarstjóri við New Museum í New York og býður hátíðin upp á framúrskarandi úrval verka eftir ýmsa listamenn og tónlistarmenn.

Does the Mirror Make the Picture

Does the Mirror Make the Picture

Sequences proudly presents Does the Mirror Make the Picture, a solo exhibition by Joan Jonas, at The Living Art Museum on the occasion of Sequences art festival eight edition.

Since the late 1960s, Joan Jonas (b. 1936, New York) has created groundbreaking multidisciplinary works that investigate time-based structures and the politics of spectatorship. Her projects often simultaneously incorporate elements of theater, dance, sound, text, drawing, sculpture, and video projection. They rely on alternate identities, narrative symbols and threads, but they also refuse linearity, privileging instead the doubled and fractured tale.

A pioneer of video art, Jonas began using the Portapak video system in 1970 to explore the shifts that occur from the camera to the projection to the body and the space of the live action. For her recent videos, performances, and installations, Jonas has frequently collaborated with musicians and dancers and has drawn from literary sources and mythic tales in realizing her multi-layered explorations.

Jonas’ exhibition will include a selection of works from throughout her career, from her early videos Wind (1968) and Song Delay (1973) to stream or river or flight or pattern (2016/2017), a project that she conceived on recent travels to Venice, Singapore, Nova Scotia, and Vietnam.

Jonas will also present a performance at Tjarnarbíó Cinema on Sunday, October 8, featuring a new collaboration with Icelandic composer and musician María Huld Markan.

Sequences will be held for the eighth time in Reykjavik October 6-15, 2017. Dedicated to time-based art, such as performance, video and sound, Sequences is an artist-initiated festival and has grown from the grass-root art scene in Iceland and established itself as a progressive international visual arts event of significance.

As with previous editions, an Off-Venue Program will be introduced as part of Sequences VIII, where artists and venues can present their exhibitions and events. Last year’s Off-Venue Program was very rich, and various exhibitions, events, talks and screenings took place around the city.

To be a part of Sequences’ Off-Venue Program, please contact offvenue@sequences.is before September 6th and submit your time-based art project taking place in Reykjavik during October 6-15, 2017. Please state title, artist(s), time and place accompanied by an image and it will appear online and in the Sequences handout.

While Sequences uses the term “real time” to refer to time-based media, “Sequences VIII: Elastic Hours” considers how the term might be applied to the experience of art making, exploring how artists manipulate time as a raw material.

Margot Norton, curator at the New Museum in New York, is the curator of Sequences VIII. Honorary artist ispioneering video artist Joan Jonas. For more information and full artist list, click here.

Sequences opens its ten-day biennial in Reykjavik, Iceland, on October 6, 2017 and proudly presents the work of twenty-one local and international artists and honorary artist Joan Jonas in this eighth edition.

An offspring of the dynamic art scene that thrives in Reykjavík, Sequences Real Time Art Festival is an independent biennial that aims to produce and present progressive visual art with a special focus on time-based mediums such as performance, sonic works, video, and public interventions. Sequences VIII features a selection of artists and performers, many of whom engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration. The hub of Sequences VIII will be the newly opened Marshall House, home to the artist-run spaces The Living Art Museum and Kling & Bang. The festival will also take place in other artist-run and publicly funded locations throughout Reykjavik. A blossoming off-venue program will be presented alongside the curated program.

Margot Norton, curator at the New Museum in New York, is the curator of Sequences VIII.

“Elastic Hours”
While Sequences uses the term “real time” to refer to time-based media, “Sequences VIII: Elastic Hours” considers how the term might be applied to the experience of art making, exploring how artists manipulate time as a raw material. Stretching, echoing, and inverting hours, the works included in Sequences VIII often go beyond standardized metrics such as clocks to investigate alternative systems for measuring and experiencing time. These works remind us that our daily rhythms are not solely determined by tradition and locality but also rooted in the natural forces, beyond our control. The passage of time is acutely palpable in Iceland in particular, as with the region’s seasonal extremes in the duration of daylight hours and mercurial weather conditions. In charting the passage of time through unconventional means, the artists included bring heightened awareness and critical insights into our relationships with objects, society, and the universe around us.

Honorary artist: Joan Jonas

Lives and works in New York) has created groundbreaking multidisciplinary works that investigate time-based structures and the politics of spectatorship.  Her projects often simultaneously incorporate elements of theater, dance, sound, text, drawing, sculpture, and video projection.

She will also present an ongoing experimental lecture demonstration at Tjarnarbíó on Sunday, October 8, featuring a new collaboration with Icelandic composer and musician María Huld Markan.
