For Kate Cooper's first institutional exhibition RIGGED, this year's winner of the Schering Stiftung Art Award has produced a new work comprising of video and photographic production specifically for KW INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART.
Through an extensive use of CGI techniques commercial photography and post-production, the show RIGGED highlights the labor inherent in the creation of images, looking at the position the female body has occupied in the history of digital image technology. Through the creation and re-rendering of images of the body, Cooper asks how these digital figures might perform in our place made real as downloadable, ultra-realized bodies.
