Zuzanna JaninBORN 1964, Warszawa
Janin experiments with different, often highly unusual materials, such as candyfloss or fog which she incorporates in her sculptures. Besides sculpting, she is also an author of installations, video installations, photographs, and performance pieces. Her practice builds on the traditions of constructivism and minimalism, but is decisively transformed by emotions and a poetic imagination. Since 2005, Janin has co-run local_30, a gallery at Foksal Street in Warsaw, and since 2010, local_30_warszawa_london in London. She has studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and at the Ecole Cantonale d’Art du Valais, Sierre, Switzerland (ECAV). Her works have been shown at the Istanbul Biennale (1992), the Biennale of Sydney (1993), the Liverpool Biennial (1998), and the FOKUS Łodź Biennale (2010).
