Luísa Jacinto’s work confronts us with images which are close to self-referential situations. Those images are created using different formats of expression such as video, collage or painting. And they diverge from the mapping of the real daily life in order to build a fictional relation with corporeal representations, fragments for the artist’s body occasionally, linked to an anonymous notion of that corporeality as well as gestures and actions disclosed in her works.

Simultaneously, this procedure introduces an ambiguous reading between the intimate nature of her glance and its mundane opposite. And she does it without including a visual reference to inform us about the time and space related to these registers.
