Narrative is a distinct language-game which is part of an operation or a form of life"
From laterna magica to the animated digital files, gifs share distinct features with silent film culture. As part of the Moving Silence events, Jiggling Golems explores the cinematic qualities of gifs, their narrative potentials and semiotics in an exhibition about gif art.

The exhibition connects to this year's Moving Silence theme of silent video portraits. Focusing more on a cinematic & narrative approach and less towards moving photography, we invited artists to take part in the exhibition with works which materialize gifs as sentient lifeforms and link to the metareference technique.

The exhibition is curated by Mariana Ziku, art historian and musician from Ioannina, Greece. Mariana is interested in electronic media and narrative theory. Read her text about gifs here
