Jerico Contemporary is pleased to present Anna Pogossova ‘X (Satellite)’. The solo exhibition opened on March 21st and will continue through April 13th, 2019.
‘X (Satellite)’ explores the hidden mythologies of objects. In creating an artificial world using recognisable images from popular culture, Pogossova creates otherworldly objects that transcend time.
Inspired by science fiction and cinematic techniques, for this exhibition the artist splices together two diverse concepts - space and the baroque and maps out a hypothetical future. Resulting in a romanticised visualisation of space, the use of recognisable but seemingly unrelated iconographies that reconfigures the mode of reception and underlines the experience of seeing itself.
Each piece in ‘X (Satellite)’ speaks to Pogossova’s exploration into the materiality of photographs and how they might be perceived as sculptural objects. Through the use of digital manipulation and layers of resin, the artist transforms the once photographic into something completely other.
Anna Pogossova was born in 1984 in Moscow, Russia. Since graduating from College of Fine Arts with a BFA (Hons) Degree in 2007 the artist's work has been concerned with the experience of familiarity in fiction. Her practice encompasses a number of mediums including, digital illustration, photography, painting and model-making.

Her recent awards include Winner, Illford Photography Prize (2005), (Winner) Lucy Aspinall Photography Prize, 2007, and a finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize 2007. The artist currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia.
