Katya Popova

“I believe that different mediums inform each other to help me sculpt my practice and keep its experimental nature alive. As an artist, I moved from 2D work to creating 3D projects. This was largely inspired by my passion for organizing and changing the perception of space. Throughout different projects: creating murals, 3D installations, experimental performances, or shadow theater, I constantly learn about new mediums and new directions in my artistic practice. As a Russian expatriate, I am constantly influenced by Russian constructivists and suprematists, like El Lessitsky, Rodchenko and Lubov Popova (no relation). German expressionism gave space to minimalists, and the Modernist mantra “less is more” is my creed.”

Katya Popova is multidisciplinary artist, working at the intersection of physical texture, shadow, and sound. Her works explore what could have been by tracing the physical gestures and material qualities of everyday things. She often works in collaboration with sound artists. Her installations have been exhibited locally and internationally.

Katya is a graduate from Rhode Island School of Design with BFA and received MA at Boston University. Presently she teaches courses on Visual Art at the New England Conservatory.
