Anna Pogossova
bonfire —

Anna Pogossova (Australia, 1984) is a photo media artist based in Sydney, whose work is concerned wit mythologies of objects and semiotics of fiction, through a variety of mediums including photography and sculpture. Anna sees the act of image-making as a kind of soothsaying, where cultural references have the ability to recall the past into different context, and collapse time into new, speculative futures. Fabrication fulfils its double meaning, as both production and make-believe.
