Galleria Bianconi, Milan
Cheryl Pope is a visual artist focused in sculpture, installation, and performance. Her work questions and responds to issues of identity as it relates to the individual and the community, specifically in regards to race, gender, class, history, power and place. Her practice emerges from the act and politics of listening.
WILLED AMNESIA is a new body of work investigating memory as a material. Using domestic aesthetics and objects from her own childhood, Pope constructs, obstructs, blurs, and erases whats remembered and whats forgotten, interrogating and revealing the malleability of memory.
