On the final day of Louisa Beatty and David Ed Cooper's exhibition Hollow pony, join Cooper in conversation with assistant curator Simon Gennard.
ABOUT DAVID ED COOPER
Born in South Africa, based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, David Ed Cooper's practice in painting and sculpture is an ongoing exercise of what he calls a 'new bruxism'. A grinding of teeth; a compression of fiction in the mouth of capitalist realism and cultural homogeneity. What remains are the ghosts of our interactions and failures. To come; the hauntings of a possible future. David graduated with a BFA (Hons) from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 2013. Previous exhibitions include Sometime, someday, when all is said and done (group), RM, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2019; fine moon, poor tuning (group), MEANWHILE, Pōneke Wellington, 2018; We didn’t feel like ourselves, Window, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2016; Double Negative, LOFT JERVOIS, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2015; RE:400. (with James Wylie), Pilot, Kirikiriroa Hamilton, 2014; International Artists Initiated (with James Wylie), David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, 2013.
