Exhibition

Matt Copson works in multidisciplinary, hybrid forms, drawing on British popular culture, from urban legends and mediaeval fables to comic strips and cartoons, from grunge to punk. His dreamlike, sometimes comical world, tinged with dark humour and irony, is filled with fantastical characters, anthropomorphic figures and amazing animals, particularly foxes and birds.

 

Laser programming - Pieterjan Ruysch / Soundtrack - felicita

 

For Open Space, Matt Copson has created Blorange (2018), a new immersive installation composed of three monumental laser projections accompanied by a soundtrack, in which a teenager recites a monologue: part poem, part manifesto.
