Jade Shapiro

‘INSTANT SPICE GIRLS’ is a personal exploration of fandom. Through her keen interest in the art of archaeology, Jade explores documentation, collection and scale to create a body of visually communicative outcomes. With collected materials as a source for content, Jade has analysed and extracted Spice Girls memorabilia in order to rework it in a project where past and present visuals meet in a contemporary approach to archival art. Jades archive researches the power of personality in sales, the Spice Girls as manufactured identities and a selling point for girl powered obsession. As a member of a culture addicted society, Jade uses her experiences of the media to study behaviour and form a project with a focus on female persona, humour and a light hearted perspective on influential personalities.
