Sites of change have been central to UK based Christopher Jones’s recent practice: demolition sites, dried-up river beds, the temple site at Ise, Japan where temple architecture is de and re-constructed every 20 years. Flux, erasure, deconstruction and renewal all play a part in the resulting paintings, prints and assemblages. Most recently Jones has become interested in ideas of the “unmonumental” – in making work that, via simplicity of mediation, achieves the authority of the quietly spoken. During his residency, Hill End will provide an apposite focus for these preoccupations presenting, as it does, vestiges of both simple living and historical, social and cultural flux.
