Ripe Mangoes Profile: Jade Anthony & Sofia Popova

Ripe Mangoes #02 opens this Friday. As we count down the days to the launch we’re profiling each of the recent graduates who are exhibiting in the show. The focus this time is on Winchester School of Art graduates Jade Anthony and Sofia Popova, who both graduated from the Fine Art BA degree course this year.

Jade Anthony & Sofia Popova

Jade and Sofia began working together two years ago. Previously, Jade was a painter and Sofia, a sculptor – skills which have become central to their collaborative practice. Their site-specific installations often include found objects and materials, referencing institutional or corporate environments and structures.

“Our practice explores architecture and visual communication in relation to the structures of the art industry, design, and capitalism… The works explore vast interconnected global subjects at a local level.”

Join us on Friday 19th August at 6pm at the Alfred Arcade on Old Northam Road for the launch of Ripe Mangoes #02.
