During her 2010 residency, Joan Jonas drew on Dante’s epic poem, The Divine Comedy, to produce a multi-sensory performance and installation that used a free-association method to create a personal, eccentric visual language of our time.
Jonas returned to FWM a few years later to make this edition of paper lamps using steel, Japanese paper, and LED lighting.

Meet the Artist
During her 2010 FWM residency, multimedia and performance artist Joan Jonas used a free-association method to create a personal, eccentric visual language, bringing her interpretation of Dante’s The Divine Comedy to life while allowing her viewers to experience the resulting work without any preconceptions. Both the medieval era of Dante and our own time, she noted, are periods of extraordinary change.
