As she arrives in an unusual setting, Jaque Jolene reveals an impulse to let go of some belongings.
Mundum is one of the first collaborations between the artist Márcia Beatriz Granero and the entity Jaque Jolene, and is therefore formative of the identity which performs within it.

Márcia Beatriz Granero is a Brazilian artist, independent producer and graduate of Belas Artes de São Paulo. Her projects explore the creation of a character, Jaque Jolene, recorded in videos and photographs. Jaque is the centre of the work, a fictional autobiographical entity who from time to time inhabits Márcia Beatriz Granero’s body. The artist collaborates with her creation in performative actions as they visit historic buildings where cultural institutions are established. These performances result in videos, photographs and installations. In them, cinematic language is explored not in order to undermine the fallacies of cinematic constructions but as a device for investigation and presentation of their surroundings. The videos have been screened and exhibited at over fifty festivals, such as: The Latino Video Art Festival of New York, Simultan Festival (Romania), Bideodromo Festival Internacional de Cine y Video Experimental (Spain), Oslo Screen International Video Art Festival (Norway), Fiva Festival Internacional de Videoarte (Argentina), International Video Festival Videomedeja (Serbia), Channels Video Art Festival (Australia), L’OEil d’Oodaaq (France), Miden Video Art Festival (Greece), Proyector Festival Internacional de Videoarte (Portugal and Italy).
