“Time is central to Coopey’s production. Not only because of his interest in the ancestral making of basketry, but also in the way the artist discreetly weaves out objects and images of different temporalities. One eye explores the organic fragility and ephemerality of his materials, while the other manipulates objects that desired eternal life and can already be seen as ruins. Between them, we see Coopey’s central preoccupation, a question of permanence.” Raphael Fonseca ‘Sunday’ 2020.
