Babette Mangolte and the New York Avant-Garde

In one of her early works, performance and video artist Joan Jonas used a video camera to feed a live performance into a monitor, while another camera recorded not only the mediated image, but also the reflection of the action visible on the monitor’s surface. During the performance, Jonas and her friend, American artist Lois Lane, performed various movements, resembling contemporary dance, workouts, and everyday tasks. In this hypnotic hall of reflections, light, shadows, and textures, the boundaries between real and imagined space as well as between performers and their mediated images disappear. I was interested in making a sensual space. It’s also a puzzle about two women, about whom there is no explanation. (JJ)
