First solo exhibition in South America by the pioneer of video art and performance, Joan Jonas (New York 1936). Curated by Berta Sichel, the exhibition consists of 11 works, including three large-scale installations: Volcano Saga (1985-89-94-2011), originally presented live with the artist's narration, and now transformed into video installation, is based on an Icelandic tale about a woman named Gudrun, who has mysterious dreams and needs the services of someone who predicts the future, like an oracle. The story is set over with images of Iceland's supernatural landscapes. Stream or River, Flight or Pattern (2016-17) is a multimedia installation that was produced during a workshop that Joan ministered along with other guest artists in Spain. The work was presented for the first time at Fundación Botín.
