About the artist

Bones Tan Jones’ (UK) work is a spiritual practice that seeks to present an alternative, queer, optimistic dystopia. They work through ritual, meditating through craft, dancing through the veil betwixt nature and the other. Bones weaves a mycelial web of diverse, eco-conscious narratives that aim to connect, enthra and induce audiences to think more sustainably and ethically. Traversing pop music, sculpture, alter-egos, digital image and video work, Bones sanctifies these mediums as tools in their craft. Selected recent commissions and exhibitions include Dream Portal Sigil Stones and Dream after Screen, 13th Shanghai Biennale (2021); The New Elementals, 7th Athens Biennale (2021); Solo Show at Underground Flower Offsite (2020); Parasites of Pangu, Serpentine Galleries, London (2019); Future skins, IMT Gallery, London (2019); Mimosa House, London (2018); A Sound Identity, ICA, London (2018–2020); Cell Project Space, London (2018); Gropius Bau, Berlin (2018); Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2016–17).
