Edwina Cooper | relative weakness
13 May – 7 May 2021
OPENING | Thursday 13th May, 6-8pm
Edwina Cooper’s process based body of work interrogates our tenuous place in the natural world, through a deconstructed boat as medium. She navigates between our human frailty over water and ability to ‘overleap’ it through innovation, returning us to an admission of our false dominance in the natural elements. Cooper focuses on water as ‘life force’, and embroiders into sails made weak and impotent, as we face and grapple with our limits.
