Octogenarian performance artist Joan Jonas is the subject of a new show at Tate Modern.
The 81-year-old will be performing live in the gallery’s Tanks’ space, as part of a 10-day programme running alongside the exhibition of her work.
Early works on display include the video Organic Honey’s Visual Telepathy (1972), which explores female identity through the artist’s sexualised alter-ego.
Later installation Stream Or River, Flight Or Pattern (2016-17), tackles climate change and animal extinction.
The New York-born artist is known for her performance work, experimental film and video installations.
Joan Jonas opens on Wednesday and runs until August 5 at Tate Modern.
