Janina Anderson | Cut-Outs


Janina Anderson | Cut-Outs


Cut-Outs uses collage to investigate how images construct meaning while serving as a site for the artist and others to explore cross-cultural identity, multiculturalism and the displacement that compounds as borderlines are drawn and redrawn, migration patterns shift and swell over generations of assimilation and dislocation. The result is an immersive network of figures whose decontextualization seeks to complicate that which is and should remain complicated.

Born in Asunción, Paraguay, Janina Anderson is an artist, writer, and educator living and working in Toronto. Anderson uses collage methodologies to explore how images function, stating her work is essentially about “looking really hard.”
