Further Biographical Context for Jane Carion
Jane Carion was born in 1892 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring different methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and began the careers of renowned artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The movement of Surrealism, inspired by ideas concerning psychology and the subconscious which were initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
