eeeeeLives and works in the European Union.


2011,Teresa Cos investigates the human condition, understood as the endless negotiation between individual

2011,subjectivities and global societies, embedded conditions of birth and displaced nomadic becomings.

2011,Through still and moving,images, sound and music, diagrams and scores, she exposes a sort of absurd

2011,dynamic stagnation (loop), generated,by the “always different, always the same” repetition of everyday rituals

2011,and mesmeric reiteration of socio-political,concepts. The overall attitude is performative, for the work comes

2011,from the active observation and intervention,on specific, yet symbolic conjunctions and it aims at conveying

 2011the immanency of a live act.
