bones tan jones

bones tan jones (b.93 Liverpool) is a queer heretic whose work traverses materials, disciplines and time lines.

Raised in a church choir in the northwest of the UK, on the borderlands of mythical Wales and enchanted England, tan jones’s work has ne’er strayed far from the ecclesiastic rituals of worship, only in tan jones’s world, the church has been burnt, the yew trees thrive in the ashes, and god is trans.

During their residency at Rupert, bones will expand on their project Parasites of Pangu, a speculative opera, to realise the work as a publication. At the end of their residency there will be a performance of the next Act of the opera, collaborating with local movement artists and vocalists, within a newly commissioned installation.
