Water Portraits Anastasija
In “Water Portraits” Jana Romanova asks people to reuse one liter of freshwater one after another until there is nothing left. After every usage, she freezes the water and take its portrait. Each portrait gets the name of the person who used it. In this project, she imagines that it's not our looks, but our actions that make our portraits. And we are responsible for what they will be.
Jana Romanova is a multidisciplinary artist inspired by misunderstandings. She works with performance and game practices, using photography and video as tools to discover gaps between what we say and what we do. She is a graduate of MA “Photography and Society” at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and a Mondriaan Artist Start grant recipient.
