In creating a portrait gallery of female werewolves Jazmina Cininas aims to expand existing visual mythographies of the female werewolf, drawing attention to the generally overlooked literary and historical narratives of female lycanthropy and the role of the feminine in the evolution of werewolf lore. Her chief medium for this project is the inherently transformative reduction linocut, whereby the plate is progressively cut into and destroyed while the print correspondingly becomes more complete.
Jazmina Cininas undertook her PhD, The Girlie Werewolf Hall of Fame: Historical and Contemporary Figurations of the Female Werewolf, at RMIT University, where she also lectures in Printmaking.
Following the presentation (approximately 40 minutes) will be the opening of Jazmina’s exhibition Blood Moon in the Sidespace Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre.
