Janaina Tschäpe

b. 1973, Germany

Janaina Tschäpe completed a degree in fine arts in Hamburg and then undertook a residency programme in Salvador, Brazil. She had spent much of her childhood in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She went on to complete a Masters of Fine Arts in New York in 1997, where she continues to be based.

Over the past 15 years, Tschäpe has exhibited all over the world. Her practice has evolved from working in performance, and the mediums of photography and moving image to creating colour saturated painterly works. It has continued to demonstrate a fascination with the transformative and entropic despite changes in medium and process. This is particularly informed by the lushness and rampant character of nature in a tropical landscape found in northern Brazil. This is often related to mythical or fairytale narratives that have their origins in ancient myths. 



Tschäpe has exhibited at the IMMA, Dublin; the Rubin Museum, New York; the Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro and Jeu de Paume, Paris. She is also represented in many important public collections around the world. These include the Centre Pompidou, in Paris; The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, in New York, amongst others. In Brazil her work can be seen at the Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea, Minas Gerais, Brasil.
