This exhibition commissioned by TBA21-Academy which concludes three years of research by this New York-born artist, was first installed at Ocean Space in Venice in 2019. It focuses on the role the ocean has played in cultures over the course of history as a totemic, spiritual and cultural reference. It features sculptures, drawings, sound and new video productions.
Following the methodology that has gained her lauded reputation, Jonas combines poetry and prose by writers like Emily Dickinson and Herman Melville with texts by Rachel Carson and Sy Montgomery, and with moving images filmed in aquariums and in Jamaica, where algae bloom and over-fishing pose urgent threats to the environment.
