Africa Universe is a monumental project divided in three chapters - exhibitions, which Primo Marella Gallery will host in the following months. Each show is dedicated to a particular artist and the first chapter of this artistic journey will start with the work of Januario Jano (1979), a multi-disciplinary Angolan artist. In his paintings, installations, photographs and performances, Jano explores the opposing notions of modern pop culture and traditional practices: “Research is at the center of my artistic practice. My interest is in the concepts of home and self, inspired by my background and globalization”. The human being and the notion of the body play a crucial role in his artistic research through which he tries to connect the present and the past in order to build a sort of historical narrative. “Objectifying the body is one of the core element predominant in my practice, hence the need to re-live the past seems to be associated with the creation of identity consists of multiple factors including gender, race, ethnicity, class, and sexuality. Seduced with the parallel between fiction and reality as the work itself has this ambivalence to it, that creates the intersection to exploring the subjects around the body and its representation occur within the increasingly globalized and cross-cultural dimension”, that dimension that is our current geological era, the human-influenced epoch, the “Anthropocene”.
