THIS IS NOT A WHITE CUBE Gallery (TINAWC) will be performing for the first time at the 2018 Cape Town Art Fair exclusively representing an individual project by the Angolan artist Januário Jano. The 6th edition of the Cape Town Art Fair will be held on 16 and 18 February at the Cape Town International Convention Center in South Africa and will be curated by South African Tumelo Mosaka and will be attended by the most important galleries in Africa, of the continent.
Januário Jano will present works from his most recent work in the "MPONDA" series accompanied by the photographic installation "SENHÔ" and will be presented in the "Tomorrows / Today" special section, which aims to highlight emerging artists who will be tomorrow's leading artists. The artist will also present a Live Performance "KALAKÁLA".
Both the "MPONDA" series and the "SENHÔ" photographic installation and the Live Performance "KALAKÁLA" are part of a project that the artist has been developing in recent times, with a specific focus on exploring the relationship between past and present, using elements of personal and collective memory, contextualized in the recent history of Angola, with a particular focus on the "ambundu" people and their trajectory.
