Pylon Skyline by Jonah King
Tuesday 04 Sep – Thursday 20 Dec, 2018
We invite Jonah King to kick off our rotating video art program in the loft.
Located in The Loft
Jonah King made this video, Pylon Skyline, with his friends, Jessica Harris and Austin Selden. There’s something in the tenderness of their friendship that he wanted to capture. Shot from above, they move in an improvised dance connecting and disconnecting their bodies.
