David Cooper 'War Hed'

Ani­ma Mun­di are delight­ed to present War Hed’ an exhi­bi­tion of sculp­ture and works on paper from David Cooper.

”There are acts of terror that can’t be ignored or cleared from the mind. The ‘War Hed’ series came about after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In this series destruction is the making. Clay, a simple medium from the ground, moulded with taped hands, and bitten, to sculpt these brutal yet fragile forms. Biting the clay was like an act of unarmed survival. Some of these forms are shown in their raw state and others have already been cast in to bronze. The permanence of molten metal imbuing further to an intended poetic.”

David Cooper, 2023
