About

Jonas’s performances Lines in the SandThe Shape, the Scent, the Feel of ThingsReading Dante IIIReanimation; and They Come to Us without a Word II reference and deconstruct ideas of the ritual, the historical, and the mythical into an infinite string of events. Reading the universal through the personal, the tales of her protagonists are excavations of long-forgotten moments in memory, resurrected in the present through the light of her multimedia scenarios. Like theatrically animated time capsules, these miniature worlds mix flashbacks with visions of an unknown future in the now. Combining ancientand contemporary technologies—from tree branches and chalk as drawing tools, to live projections of her actions—Jonas’s imagery captures the present state of the world andour time, a period, according to Jonas, of mannerisms and fragmented memory.
