For the month of May COOP will present Droopy Totems by Derek Larson. An installation of colorful and geometric patterns in video and projected on freestanding screens. Each piece communicates through morse code with audio and light telling a bad “water cooler joke” while showing fatigue through exaggerated slouching and bent posture.
Derek Larson is from Seattle and received his MFA from the Yale School of Art and has exhibited in the US and internationally, recently he presented his Memes project at the Finnish Museum of Photography in Helsinki. He has participated in a number of residencies including the Yale Norfolk Program and Arteles in Finland. His work has been featured in the Seattle Times, NY Arts Magazine and Rhizome @ The New Museum in New York.
