Queercircle is presenting new exhibition bones tan jones: Tunnel Visions from 8 October to 21 December 2022 at its venue in East London.
‘Tunnel Visions’ is a solo exhibition by bones tan jones, their first institutional presentation in the UK.
‘Tunnel Visions’ isa site-specific installation within Queercircle’s main gallery space, and a 4-metre high, central monolith will pay tribute to a 2,500-year-old Anckerwyke Yew tree, which tan jones encountered during a six-day walking pilgrimage.
Beginning at the Silvertown Tunnel, a new road tunnel being constructed directly underneath Queercircle, the pilgrimage took tan jones to Stonehenge, Salisbury. Large flags will also adorn the space, their designs commenting on environmentalism and the legacy of land ownership in the UK.
During the exhibition, the installation will become a living organism and a community-led campaign space for public programming, choral performances and workshops led by tan jones, SHAG and the ‘Stop The Silvertown Tunnel Coalition’.
