The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things

I went to the Yvon Lambert Gallery (550 West 21st Street) to see the exhibit by Joan Jonas. The exhibit is based on a performance series she did at Dia Beacon. This exhibition is called The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things. I've known Joan for thirty five years. In the early seventies I rented her loft on Grand Street during the summer. I took sound for Double Lunar Dogs, and I also played Omi Wise on the violin for a performance she gave at Anthology Film Archives. Omi Wise is one of the songs on the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music. The haunting refrains of that song are alot like Joan's work.
