Janaina Wagner develops her research in several media, such as film, photography, books, drawing, installations, scenography, and painting. The neuralgic point of her work are the relations of limit, control and containment that the human establishes with the world.

Among the main exhibitions, the individual ones With burning love – (Villa Belleville, Paris), Criatura (Oficina Cultural Oswald Andrade, SP), and Decupagem/ Crônica de um final anunciado (MARP, SP) stand out; and the group shows Ensaio de Tração – Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, 10 Semana de Cinema do Rio de Janeiro, Bestiário – Centro Cultural São Paulo – CCSP, Permanências e Destruições – Torre H (RJ), Hipótese e Horizonte – Observatório (SP), 4o Prêmio EDP nas Artes – Instituto Tomie Ohtake (SP).
