Entitled “Kwika – Love or hate”, this new exhibition by Januário Jano presents his latest works that fit the continuity of the work developed by the artist in Luanda entitled “Fragmentação 1.0. Kwika means “Tying” in the Kimbundu language, and in Janus’s artistic reasoning it involves the past (or emotion, memories) that must be “digested” within itself, while canceling the present (and what happens out of itself). Without this record, almost “therapeutic”, Januario does not see a future where everything can coexist – love and hate, in balance. With a panel of about 12 original works of different formats Januário Jano creates a story through its aesthetic and defines a path of coexistence, a mooring, between past, present and future. With an expressive record and a colorful and vibrant aesthetic point of view, the artist does not allow a reflective, rational and argumentative component. Januario uses symbols and traits that are characteristic of him, to give the body a more spontaneous line of expression, but only in appearance, because everything is annulled by control (which he himself imposes) – large, black lines appealing to masculinity and maturity.
