Justine Cooper is an artist working on all kinds of art forms. In the photographic context are interesting her current big project Saved by Science (photos from the the hidden spaces and stored collections of the American Museum of Natural History) and Casanuova (” At Casanuova I made near-abstract digital images of the materials used to make the showroom items – porcelain, leather, veneer, metal. From New York I sent the images back to a village in China, where they painted them for me in a photo-realistic manner. After all, China’s economy is partly built on its mastery of the knock-off. Now the painting becomes the copy and the digital image the original. I prefer the painting.”).
