Artist-run S1, directed by Erik Carlson, Felisha Ledesma, and Alex Ian Smith, brings Jones’ solo show which, like always, is introduced via a series of evocative and seemingly disjointed images and phrases. Words like “martyr” and “apostle” and followed by non-sensical dyads like “peninsula / imposter” and “diametric / innocence”.
The exhibition’s FB page comes with a series of images, also accompanied with dyadic images of sculptures and close-ups of encrusted jewels presented with phrases like “Firm\firmament – The Great Halls of Listening (you are forever you are forever you are forever you are forever)”. None of it quite adds up in introduction but makes sense in the peculiar taxonomy of Jones’s work, to be expanded on in a panel discussion with the artist, along with Eleanor Ford and Matt Carlson on May 29.
