Born in Latisana, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Italy, sun in Cancer, moon in Scorpio, rising Aquarius.
Teresa Cos investigates the human condition, understood as the endless negotiation between individual subjectivities and global societies, embedded conditions of birth and displaced nomadic becomings. Combining still and moving images with sound and music compositions and live performances, she exposes and exorcises the absurd dynamic stagnation - loop - recognisable in the pattern behaviour of socio-political structures and emotional thought processes.
Teresa Cos’ film works, installations and live performances have been presented at the WIELS Contemporary Arts Centre, The MAC (Metropolitan Arts Centre Belfast), Drodesera XXXVI/Live Works Festival, Marres House of Contemporary Culture, Careof, ISELP, Oberhausen Film Festival, 14th Venice International Architecture Biennale.
She has taken part in several international residency programmes and workshops, including the WIELS, Jan Van Eyck Academy, Visio-European Program on Artists’ Moving Images and the Botín Foundation workshop with Tacita Dean. Her film and video works are collected and distributed by the Argos Centre for Art and Media in Brussels, where she will have a solo exhibition in the Fall of 2018.
