Mandy L. Cooper’s work explores what meaning is revealed through the dissection of a subject, and in creating meaning or corrections with the parts of dissected material through rearranging, reframing or reimagining them. Her project-based works vary from photography, video, sculpture, drawing, painting, ready-mades, and participatory work.

In the Ambry series, Cooper manipulated family video-stills by grafting them onto her skin and by sculpting them into “memory cakes.” Moments of her parent’s childhood as well as her own, and family clothing and materials are compressed, folded, torn, and discolored like the jumble of our memories that can never be pieced together or clearly seen.
