Using a visual language she terms “hypercapitalism,” Kate Cooper produces heavily manipulated images of women to question the representation of femininity in our age of consumption and digital technology. Her approach is informed by feminism and an interest in forms of labor and collaboration. She feeds this latter interest into her work as co-director of the artist-run collaborative, Auto Italia South East (est. 2007). For her own photographs and videos, she riffs off of the aesthetics of advertising, television, and other trappings of consumerism. She has photographed live models and then digitally manipulated their images, transforming them into idealized figures. She has also worked with CGI technology, crafting images of women from scratch. As she says about these processes: “I’m interested in...the labor involved, and the position of those images, and what they mean in terms of representation.”
