OUTPUT gallery invites Knowsley-born Kate Cooper
for her first solo show in the city. Cooper lives and works between London and Amsterdam. She recently completed her residency at the Rijksakademie, and is a Director and co-founder of the London-based artist-led organisation Auto Italia. Cooper’s work centres on the body as a contested space for communication and representation. In her artistic practice, she uses CGI to manipulate avatar bodies in surreal situations, in which characters function both as objects and as infrastructure. Presented as harbingers of affect; these fictional liminal bodies are presented as forms of weaponry with which to unpick and reject contemporary modes of exploitative labour.
Kate Cooper will return to the gallery July 26th for an interview with gallery manager Gabrielle de la Puente. The two will discuss the work Cooper has presented in her first solo exhibition in Liverpool, as well as the wider activities and politics of her practice.
