Yelena Popova, 'The Scholar Stones Project' at the Holden Gallery
07.02.20 - 20.03.20
Working across a range of media including painting, installation and tapestry, Popova’s interdisciplinary project addresses an ongoing fascination with nuclear history and materiality. The exploration into nuclear heritage reflects on Popova’s autobiographical history, having grown up in Ozyorsk, Russia, a secret closed city, and the birthplace of the Soviet nuclear-weapons programme.
‘The Scholar Stones Project’ is supported by the Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre, Sculpture Production Award 2019, and Arts Council England.
