Delivered as part of Brisbane City Council’s Temporary Art Program 2020.

Becoming invites viewers to experience the space between personal memory and shared understanding through combining photography and architecture. Within this project photographs, which have been created through experimental processes that take their cues from how memory operate, are materialised on the built environment.  A building, which is both a container and object of memory, becoming the vehicle for exposing the visual structure of remembrances.

Jacinta Giles

Jacinta Giles is an emerging visual artist who uses the materiality and conceptual framework of photography to explore the impermanent, mutable and fragmentary nature of memory.

Through using unconventional photographic processes that take their cues from how memory operates, Giles creates images that speak to the affective and shared visual nature of remembrances. In subverting photographic temporality — the idea that a photograph represents a single moment in time — her work could be considered an archiving of memory traces and lost recollections. Giles has exhibited in galleries across Australia and in London and graduated with a Master of Visual Art from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, in 2016.
