Jerboa Jerboa's enchantments cost her dear

Jazmina Cininas
Jazmina Cininas’ work is frequently inspired by the pop-cultural imaginary surrounding lycanthropy. In Jerboa Jerboa's enchantments cost her dear, the artist has drawn on Philippe Mora’s 1987 spoof film Howling III: The Marsuipials, which centres on an endangered race of were-thylacines discovered in the Australian wilderness. Using the intricate and process dense technique of reduction linocut, Cininas’ print presents the were-thylacine surrounded by plant species now extinct to Tasmania, including the Sothern Shepherd’s Hook or Ballantina, that like the thylacine, were victim of introduced sheep industries. Like Mora’s original film, the work is a stark reminder of the long felt and ongoing implications of European colonisation on both indigenous lands, and aboriginal people over the world. Jerboa Jerboa's enchantments cost her dear is one of 51 works selected as finalists in the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.
