Spotlights

In4Art Spotlights: Yelena Popova


In4Art Spotlights are created to support and promote artists from the In4Art Open Collection and is part of the artist incubation track. The artist (and representing gallery) are offered our venue to shine a spotlight on the artist’s work during special private gatherings.

On the  occasion of Brussels Art Week, we are pleased to present Cyber Paintings by Yelena Popova in collaboration with Division of Labour. There will be a Spotlight Breakfast and Dinner to get acquinted with the work and vision of Yelena Popova.

Yelena Popova ( Urals, Russia) lives and works in Nottingham. She studied at Moscow Art Theatre School and Byam Shaw at Central St Martins before graduating from MA Painting at the Royal College of Art in July 2011.

Popova is an artist who works across a wide range of media, including painting, video and installation. Reflecting her upbringing in the Urals, she is influenced by the tenets of Russian Constructivism, while often seeking to discuss the constant development of industrialism and the landscape of contemporary Capitalism. There is an important stress placed upon the theme of balance within her work, whether this is political, aesthetic or metaphysical.

“ It is as if I as a painter could adopt the logic of the machine to generate these images through practicing, performing, producing and expresing the possibilities of one mathematical algorithm. Ego sum apparatus? (Am I a machine?)”

Division of Labour and Cøpperfield are participating at Art Brussels within the Discovery section Booth D11.
