Tintin Cooper graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and currently lives and works as an artist in Berlin and Bangkok.
She is known for her video appropriations and collage, light work and installations. Some recent projects include solo show 'POOL' at Bangkok Biennale and Artist+RUN Gallery‚ Monologue Dialogue’ at BACC and Koppel Projects, London (2017, 2014)‚ 31' at Philip Pflug, Frankfurt (2016), with publications by Verlag für Moderne Kunst (Vienna) and Gestalten (Berlin). Her video works have shown at Tate Britain, Transmediale and Sydney Biennale.
Her works are often funny and appropriate popular culture images and cartoon illustrations (such as football, self-defense, the army and war, yoga and pseudo-spirituality fads), which are then deconstructed by using various media, including installation, neon light, video, and painting. In a way her work mirrors what happens to images more generally today, namely being morphed and altered and disseminated via mass media and the Internet.
