Jakub Jansa, B. 1989, works and lives in Prague.
MgA – AAAD (Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design) in Prague, Studio of Supermedia
Jakub Jansa freely combines various media, and primarily creates installations and performances that are responsive to the context of the place. Jakub Jansa’s work aims at exploring archetypal phenomena and situations and exposes their presence in our culture even there, where they are no longer remembered.
His projects are set in the present day world of the ubiquitous announcers of progress and foolish visionaries, where the permanent revolution of building elements has become an everyday reality. He thus asks about the meaning and necessity of revolutionism which leads him also to coming to terms with the archetypal role of a supermedia artist.
“Art is game.”
