Teresa Cos is a visual artist whose work explores the human condition and its physical and psychological perception of reality, by combining experience, photographs, drawings andsound into site-related installations. Teresa holds a degree in Architecture from IUAV University in Venice and an MA in Documentary Photography from London College of Communication.
In 2009 she was in the team of Bernardo Secchi e Paola Viganò working on Le Grand Pari de l’Agglomération Parisienne. She has recently concluded a long term commission resulting in a series of photographs of Historic Royal Palaces in London. Teresa is the recipient of Bevilacqua La Masa 95th Young Artists Scholarship and has been selected in a number of prizes and residences, including a workshop with Tacita Dean, promoted by the Botin Foundation.In 2013 she had solo shows at Galleria Massimodeluca in Venice and Stella McCartney Milan, among other international collective exhibitions and contributions.
Teresa Cos reflects over her condition of commuter and her trips between Venice and London: two calls and two countries, residence and work. She chooses a defined period of time to obsessively document the landscape as seen through the airplane window.
Repetition does not show the identical; even though the automatisms of the everyday seem to follow the rhythm of superimposable actions, the living changes continuously, or better still entropically; the body consumes its energy within its synapsis, articulating its limbs and bearing its own weight. Yet to give oneself one rule and a defined time, among those clouds and mountains and the small and extended urban fillings…suddenly something emerges, an intuition, and the clouds dissipate where everything appeared so tedious and monotonous. The work is a clear spatial and formal synthesis: the camera lens refers to itself, a circle that fixates instants of temporal discontinuity, a meta-level of a visual experience.
