Coop is developing new work around non-verbal gesture, including hesitations, anxieties, desires and responses. Works are often site-specific, and may take the form of projection onto partially drawn or painted surfaces. Coop exhibited “Truce” in the Camberwell Arts Festival, in June 2018, “U turn” at Martyr’s Gallery, Lewes, in September 2018, and are preparing “what is lost” for the Ruskin Gallery, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, in November 2018.
Coop is myself and colleague, Andrew James, working together since 2016, but with a history of previous collaboration.

These drawings are part of a collaborative research into gestures and communication, which we are currently developing into projected pieces with drawn interventions to frame and disrupt them.
