Janaina Wagner

(this page was last updated in June 2019)

São Paulo, Brazil, 1989.
Lives and works in Roubaix, France.

PIPA 2019 nominee.

BA both in Fine Arts and in Journalism, with an MA at Experimentation in Politics and Art (SPEAP) and a middle school Cinema teacher, many of Wagner’s references derives from the procedures through which mankind registers and articulates its progress and legacy. Journalism’s sociological bias functions for her as a manner of approaching the mechanisms that validate a story as a true one – a constellation of tales, facts and images. The same way as a journalist departs from facts to construct narratives, Janaina develops her plastic work in a “decoupage” process, rearticulating images and texts that are already inserted in media circulation.
