As artist in residence with Ffotogallery
in Spring 2015, Jana Romanova’s project
‘Adopted Welsh’ investigates questions around
national and European identity. Russian artist
Romanova travelled around Wales asking
people what her future may look like if she were
to move to Wales, and what she needed to do
to become more Welsh and integrate within
different areas, communities and cultures.
Jana Romanova is a documentary photographer and artist based in St Petersburg. Working with photography, performance and video installation, Romanova’s work seeks to define and question our understandings of nationality, family and relationships.
