Johann Kööp 2020 







 

 STATEMENT 




Johann Kööp (b. 1997) is a visual artist from Estonia. Currently living and working in Coventry, UK, where he is also completing his BA in photography. Kööp works across multiple concepts and mediums, reflecting on collective and individual experiences with communication in the complex contemporary world. The work is informed a great deal trough personal encounters and observations, which turns into a playful clash of subjectivity and objectivity, staying in a realm of comprehension by finding a starting point in the work of critical theories of society. The work comes to life through the use of various materials relating to home and the urban space. It mostly takes the form of fashion photography, however the inspirations behind it rather root in the public space. Through strong colour and intense light the work returns to the intensity that had once inspired it.
