Ana Zoe Pop

Concerned with closed shapes, Ana Zoe Pop seems determined to keep in her dense, tightly closed or only fortified space (“Count their towers, look at its backing!”, the psalmist leads us over the centuries) and guarded by any outside interference, the motif’s primary significances that are inferred (formulated in her personal key) or only suggested; we are actually in different stages of a process that has marked its course through signs in composition of which the artist never returns, considering them already part of a visual alphabet developed and provided to the public with full otherness (and all personal exhibitions and collective events she has attended are part of this endeavour), both for reading, decoding, and for philosophizing.
