Award-winning contemporary artist and curator based in Hong Kong.
"Contemporary lives in altermodernity have become journeys in a chaotic universe, transforming it into a territory which may be traveled both in time and space. In such a changing terrain, individuals’ daily practices, as well as their sense of self, rely on constant translation and mediation between identities and cultures, an ongoing process of negotiation of cultural meanings."
Poposki's artistic research has a key point of reference regarding the history of art on an international scale
regarding the artist as subject matter. While his research is visually in reference to ‘monumental figures’, it is self-reflective and is an abstracted self portrait. Not that his research physically resembles the work of historically significant artists such as Joseph Beuys, Hannah Wilke, Vito Acconci or Cindy Sherman etc., I do believe there are significant and notable connections.
Poposki's work "The Wrestler" contributes to an important area of research for postmodern artists working in a diversity of disciplines: the relationship of traditional visual art practice (in his case drawing) with the accelerating proliferation of digital visual media across our global culture. In this respect the medium of the animated "glitch gif" has the interesting potential to become an intervention in, and critique of, the various ways in
which information and entertainment is disseminated globally.
Poposki's visual meta-language in the cycle of drawings Theoria, based on a multitude of sign structures, and conditioned by the linguistic analytical games, contexts and relationships, offers an exciting reading through the reconstructing of the models of postmodern deconstruction of narration.
