Jana Romanova is a multidisciplinary artist inspired by misunderstandings. She works with performance and play practices, using photography and video to discover gaps between what we say and do. She takes these breaches in communication as possibilities for being together, whatever that could mean.

Her long-term projects were exhibited at various international exhibitions and festivals such as Prospects (Rotterdam NL), Copenhagen PhotoFestival (Denmark), Format (Derby, UK), Chobi Mela (Dakha, Bangladesh), Cortona on the Move (Italy), Encontros da Imagem (Braga, Portugal), the Backlight Festival (Tampere, Finland), Encuentros Abietros Festival (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and many others, and she’s got several prizes and honorable mentions in photography and art all over the world. 

Currently, she is researching how games, play and playfulness can be tools for creating meaningful connections. She designs and facilitates LARPs (live-action role plays) and games in physical spaces as a part of her art practice. 

As a guest teacher, she is invited to facilitate workshops on playful approaches at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Wageningen University, and ArtEz in the Netherlands. She is a co-founder of “More Than a Project”, an online educational platform for visual artists together with Maria Morina.
