Das österreichisch-französisches Künstlerduo Jana & Js stellt Anfang Februar 2015 in Wien aus. Unter dem Titel „Forget the outside“ präsentieren die Stencil Künstler eine Auswahl neuer Arbeiten in der INOPERAbLE Gallery.
The new work by Jana & Js is closely related to the theme of memory associated with the cause of emotions such as melancholy and nostalgia. The exhibition „Forget the outside“ is seen through the eyes of a time gone by and explores the feeling of being cut off from the outside world. Objets trouvés serve as a starting point, which the artists collected in the course of their travels and exploration of abandoned places. Similar to their work in public space, it is the encountered context that determines the framework for Jana & Js’ artistic production.

About the Artists Jana (* 1985) and Js ( * 1981 ) live and work together since 2007. The art of the Austrian-French artist duo is formed by a complex and detailed stencil technique, which they have perfected over the years. Jana & Js’ realistic images based on their own photographic work can be found in public space as well as in the context of exhibitions. Their interest in urban space is primarily reflected in the artworks Reconstitutions de façades (three dimensional wooden architectural structures); additionally they portray interpersonal relationships and are extremely interested in the residents of urban landscapes. Jana & Js work with acrylic, ink, pencil, and spray paint on wood, glass, metal, canvas or paper. Their outdoor work and murals can be found in London, Moscow, Spain, Eastern Europe and China. The duo have exhibited in Australia, USA, Russia, Spain, France and Austria.
