Jacinta Giles: False Continuity

18 May

June 5, 2022

Jan Manton Gallery

The photographic works in False Continuity are a continuation of Jacinta’s ongoing interest in questioning our understanding of our contemporary visual world, particularly our experience of the moving-image.

In seeking to expose the temporal pulse, shifting velocities, and gestures of women across different genres of cinema, False Continuity materialises the language systems used by film to mediate ideas of womanhood. Through disrupting our narrative experience of films from the genres of Hollywood Cinema, Romantic Comedy, Dystopian Science Fiction, Superhero, and Horror (Vampire), this project reveals the seductive agency of cinematic images and the coding they contain regarding ‘being a woman’.

By using the cinematic process of false continuity editing—putting two or more non-chronological images together to create a new narrative—each work in the exhibition makes visible the repetitions of movement, tonality, and form used in cinema to construct filmic femininity.
