ARCANA

Charlotte Janowski is an artist, performer, and director. She designs bespoke masks, installations, and curates performances based in the art of story-telling. She is known for creating otherworldly masked sculpture pieces. Conceptually she focuses on writing about the intersection between mythology, new paradigm story-telling, and the psychology of identity.
She explores the use of the mask as a tool for shape-shifting facets of the psyche and the ability to create cognitive dissonance with sculpted forms. The mask acts like the Rorschach test; a mirror for the subconscious to project fears and desires upon it. The mask allows opportunity for new narratives at any moment to be birthed. Mask-ritual releases us and awakens us to shadow work. The mask itself is a void. It can be a bridge, a vessel, a tool, a mirror; or even a portal for transformations within the psychic landscape.
