The Ups &\; Downs is an installation series. The show goes up\, the show goes down. Opening party on Friday night and c losing party the next night\, on Saturday. No time for exhibitions. Low imp act\, ephemeral and immersive art. People with lots of People. The market. It’s a party. Time for the underground. It’s a ball. It’s for The People. T his has been made for you. You look familiar? The show must go on. Installe d and De-installed. Up. Down. Now what? Now then…

This installation is about elbows\, the least friendly part of the body\; elbows on the free way\, the least social social-interaction. Let’s face it: In the freeway it is You or Them. Body parts are at high risks\, morphing into the space of the car\, you maneuver and try to out-strategize Them. The last figure in t he installation is the hopelessly ideal. The one that is the Other. The unu sed body part\, the dreamer\, the drifter\, the asleep at the wheel\, the o ne no one talks about.

\n

Bridging the gap between installation art an d set design\, Janne translates text and spatial dimension into new forms o f expression. Her work explores spatial development in performance and gall ery dynamics. Her strategy is like that of Brancusi or Meyerhold: "to creat e an event that transforms the stage\, it's objects and the entire material space of the auditorium - including the audience members - into the work." Through social experiments in art\, Janne breaks through the fourth wall b y challenging the structures behind preconceived notions of art and perform ance.
