Locust Jones: World News


Locust Jones, World News, 2021, poster book, 42 pages, edition of 100

$300.00 inc GST

Locust Jones newest artwork ‘World News’ takes its form as a limited edition poster book. The 42 page book comes apart to re-assemble as a slightly downscaled version of his monumental scroll work ‘Covid 19, six weeks in the life of a global pandemic from March 9 to April 20 and the mass media and states of Hysteria that accompanied this time’ presented in his 2020 solo exhibition Situation Room. Speaking of this scroll work Naomi Riddle writes “Jones may well be inside the newsfeed as much as anyone else, but instead of sharing or retweeting, he is recording it. The first thing you notice when looking at Jones’ work is this process of attending—a process that slows the current instead of speeding it up. Jones is not a reporter who wants to be first on the scene, but a spy, an observer taking meticulous notes.”
