West Space
Artist Talk: Tintin Cooper

3pm, Saturday, 17 February
The cycle of life of a meme
Accessible Toilet
Wheelchair Accessible

Hear from West Space artist-in-residence Tintin Cooper.

Tintin will present some of her works from 2008-present, all of which take their starting point from online images.

Alongside, Tintin will show cherished images from her collection that have inspired her (directly or indirectly), including sporting icons, memes like Pepe the Frog and ancient Roman busts of the emperor Caligula.

These images are interesting to Tintin due to their constant mutations/evolutions, and their attempt to dissect and understand the male heroic image, whether it’s through humour or outright subversion.

To finish in a more zen-like manner, Tintin has invited haiku poet Rob Scott to read some of his works inspired by Collingwood matches.
