Maja Janczar (b. 1995) lives and works in Warsaw, Poland. She is a painting faculty graduate from the Fine Arts Academy in Warsaw. Janczar creates paintings, sculptures and drawings. The artist is interested in the subject of exclusive communities, trying to imagine a collective that merges human and non-human. Her works often reflect upon the interiors of Polish homes, conveying both their intimacy and folksiness. She was honored at the 45th Painting Biennal Bielska Jesień and appeared as a finalist at the 19th Artystyczna Podróż Hestii Competition. Her works have been exhibited in institutions such as Zachęta National Art Gallery (2022, 2020), Museum of Modern Art Warsaw (2021) and CSW Ujazdowski Castle (2020). Scholarship holder of the Minister of Culture, Sport and National Heritage (2020).

Janczar’s work is featured in A PROFECÍA. Curated by Filipka Rutkowska as a continuation of Casa Filipka – an ongoing project organized together with Her Clique – A PROFECÍA is centered on an envisioned future through the female gaze; one that enables a more empowered, speculative relation to both time and space, plant, landscape, and animal; one that breaks the brutality of dualistic thinking and binary structures and replaces them with a spectrum, acknowledging and honoring the and rather than the or. Following principles of transfuturism, and emerging from histories like that of Casa Susanna, this exhibition is a frame for repositioning one's own body as the intermediary for a more intuitive knowledge; a knowledge that doesn’t make assumptions but rather listens, looks, smells, tastes, hears, feels, orients, and balances. A knowledge that doesn’t require eyes for seeing but presupposes sentience, non-human intelligence, time, cycles, and the fluidity of being (in its broadest possible definition), and exists within a continuum of experiences and knowledge, through-out (non-linear) time. And as this knowledge becomes accumulated and disseminated, and as personal mythologies merge with predominant norms, feminist histories, ecologies and states of being, through rose-tinged utopian lenses we divine a centered space that is Other – healing, forgiving, holistic, transparent, and visible – in and of itself.
