Ice Cream by Zoran Poposki is a conceptual artwork combining text and digitally edited images working together to subvert the meaning of the original image. The artwork was created in the midst of the global coronavirus outbreak in 2020. The artwork creation starts with a photo rendering of the corona virus, as an omnipresent image associated with panic and fear in early 2020. The image is then transformed digitally and text is added in order to take away the negative connotations and infuse it with positive associations.
Internationally acclaimed artist, curator and academic. Artistic practice combines photography, printmaking, video, performance, painting, drawing, and publishing to explore themes of spatial epistemology, identity, and cultural translation.
Work shown in 70+ exhibitions, screenings and festivals worldwide, including Art Basel Hong Kong, Institute of Contemporary Arts London, 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts Ljubljana, and many more.
