Exhibitions A Whisper in Lieu of a Scream (Un Susurro en Lugar de un Grito) by Andres Janacua
December 1-22, 2020
As an artist who works in 16mm film, Andres Janacua is interested in crafting moving images that challenge logical conventions. As such, he takes great interest in the possibility of working with the 16mm film and lantern slide collection during the stint of his residency. It is his intention to craft a 16mm film “narrative” with original footage and appropriated materials from the 16mm archive and lantern slide collection at VSW. In particular, he is interested in images of quadrupeds and their historic representation through these mediums.
Andres Janacua was born in 1982, possibly in Los Angeles. He received a BFA from the University of Southern California, MFA from Claremont Graduate University. Janacua has been an artist in residence at MFAH CORE, Houston; Queens Museum; SOMA, Mexico City and more. He currently resides in Los Angeles, and is the founder of Galería Perdida, an exhibition and studio collective, 2005-2017.
Funds for this residency came from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the Max and Marian Farash Foundation; and Joy of Giving Something.
