About

About the frustration and hurt that comes from marketing images with unattainable alluring perfection.

British artist Kate Cooper’s digital bodies, heavily featured in her recent video work, are particularly haunting. Using the same visual language as the hyper-commercialized images of today’s mass marketing campaigns – flawless skin and perfect female physique – she addresses the desire and violence inherent to these images. Their unattainable alluring perfection can only lead to frustration and hurt.

Instead, Cooper talks about ‘hacking’ such representations, trying to find more radical ways for these perfect bodies to sabotage their own perfection: bright red blood drops escaping a pair of perfectly shaped lips, or a diseased and crippled figure stumbling about, instantly conjuring up visions of bodily horror.

☞ Screening in the framework of The future is feminist, a programme focussing on feminism today.
