Janowski works between art, documentary practices and curatorial processes. His work explores the concept of territory, the sense of belonging and hybrid identities from an intersectional perspective in Latin America. Collaborative dynamics and historical contexts are the axes of his narratives, as well as their dissemination through transmedia platforms.


It is a selection of landscapes linked to sacred sites of the native peoples, along with a series of intervened portraits that are a criticism of the process of acculturation and extermination by the Salesian order in southern Patagonia, on the island of Tierra del Fire, the end of the world (Argentina). They are portraits that speak of the exoticization of native peoples, of the idea of barbarism prevailing at the time, etc. Nicolas (Artist) usually presents these portraits on transparent acetates or floating printed silk separated from the wall. These pieces are very ethereal, and they dialogue very well with the large format landscapes (1.65 meters per long side framed, printed on matte Hahnemühle cotton paper). We complement the installation with a video piece. The walls of the Booth will be painted in a color linked to the work.
