In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co.
Edited with text by Joan Simon. Text by Joan Jonas, Douglas Crimp, Johanna Burton, Barbara Clausen, Richard Serra, Susan Rothenberg.

Featured image is a staged photograph by Gwenn Thomas, shot in 1974 in Joan Jonas' loft, of an image from Jonas' <I>Twilight</I>, 1974. It is reproduced from <I>In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas</I>.One of the most continuously influential figures of the past half century, Joan Jonas was among the first artists to embrace the forms of video, performance and installation. From her beginnings as a sculptor, and her emergence in the New York art and performance scenes of the 1960s and 70s (including the seminal "Vertical Roll" video piece of 1972, in which the titular television malfunction enacted a memorably fractured female identity), up through her six appearances at Documenta and her performance at the Performa 13 biennial, her work has always been surprising, groundbreaking and necessary. This extensively illustrated volume, containing hundreds of full-color photographs, drawings, scripts and diagrams, presents the definitive collection of Jonas' work. The first and authoritative career-spanning monograph of the multimedia pioneer, it covers more than 40 years of performances, films, videos, installations, texts and video sculptures. Art writer Joan Simon has painstakingly researched every one of Jonas' works and includes notes on each piece, along with new and never-before-published writings by the artist that provide extensive background. In the Shadow a Shadow also contains essays by Douglas Crimp, Barbara Clausen and Johanna Burton, and unpublished photographs and drawings from Jonas' archives. With a detailed production and exhibition history of the video and performance works, as well as the first comprehensive bibliography and biography of the artist, this intensively researched and authoritative book documents the range, breadth and depth of one of the most prolifically original artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
New York–born and based, Joan Jonas (born 1936) has taught at UCLA School of the Arts, in Stuttgart, Germany and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she is a professor emerita. She has lived and worked in Greece, Morocco, India, Germany, Holland, Iceland, Poland, Japan, Italy, Hungary and Ireland.

Featured image is a staged photograph by Gwenn Thomas, shot in 1974 in Joan Jonas' loft, of an image from Jonas' Twilight, 1974. It is reproduced from In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas.

...a monumental art-historical achievement.

Artblog

Andrea Kirsh

This massive and copiously researched volume records all of Jonas’ work visually and textually–including performance scripts and scores for pieces which involved simultaneous visual, verbal and aural components, all with accompanying notes by the artist and annotations by Simon… This monograph is an invaluable record of Jonas’ work.

In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas

Joan Jonas Book Launch at MoMA PS1"If it seems surprising that Joan Jonas regularly points to magic shows and Broadway musicals as great influences 
on her practice, the artist's enthusiasm for such stagecraft becomes less unlikely when considered alongside an observation she once attributed to Gaston Bachelard," Johanna Burton writes in Gregory R. Miller's stupendous, 536-page In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas, which launches today at MoMA PS1. "'The symbol plucks all the strings of the human spirit at once—speech is compelled to take up a single thought at a time. Only a symbol can combine disparate elements into a unitary expression.' Jonas' use of these words is quite apt, since they underscore the way in which her own works are typically non-linear. Objects and events are rarely taken up one at a time by the artist. Instead, she creates an intricate layering system, never allowing a work's myriad elements to be immediately accessible to audiences, even while they are all in play—such that no viewer ever quite sees everything there is to see at any given moment. In this light, Jonas' evocation of magic and musicals becomes quite specific in its implications: As she says in an interview with Joan Simon, her attraction to these forms of entertainment issues from their ability to create 'illusions, surprises,' while her own work labors to 'reveal the way the illusions were made.'" Featured image is a photograph (by Richard Serra) for a poster (never produced) of Organic Honey's Visual Telepathy (1972), Jonas' first performance employing video. continue to blog
