Jacinta Jardine: Streakers

27th April – 1st May 2011

Opening Reception Wed 27th April 6 – 8pm
Runs Daily 12pm – 7pm

Streakers is the first solo show by Jacinta Jardine, an emerging multi-disciplinary artist
from County Dublin. The exhibition comprises of new video, photography and interactive
media pieces, along with an adapted version of Jacinta’s graduate installation. Jacinta’s
practice centres on audience participation and contemporary cultural mindsets; she creates
mundane situations and injects them with flashes of light-hearted humour and diversion,
focusing on ideas of play, imagination and exploration. This show is heavily influenced by
the almost visual cloud of doom which has recently engulfed the general public; aiming to
create, if only momentarily, an escape from it.

Jacinta Jardine graduated from the Institute of Art, Design & Technology in June 2010 with
a BA Honours degree in Visual Arts Practice, and was subsequently chosen to be part of the
Joinery’s graduate programme. She was also awarded a four month digital media residency
from the Firestation Studios which commenced in November 2010. Jacinta has been a
member of the media art collective MART since 2009, exhibiting work in various exhibitions
and events organised by the collective, including the 2009 Galway Arts Festival.
