Teresa Cos

Teresa Cos is a visual artist and musician based in London. Indebted forever to rhythmanalysis and depth psychology, their audiovisual works, performances and scores map and disrupt culturally fabricated notions of time, identity, memory, and desire.

Combining traditional film and musical syntax with randomised processes intrinsic to improvisation and automation (the loop), Teresa explores the potential of expanded sound and cinema, to reappropriate the spaces of wonder and dreaming too long exploited by the capitalist spell. 

Teresa has presented and performed their work in various international contexts including Cafè Oto, Radiophrenia at CCA Glasgow, KBC-Belgrade Cultural Centre, 3rd Industrial Art Biennial, Argos Centre for Audiovisual Arts, WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Casino Luxembourg, Kanal-Centre Pompidou, The Mac – Metropolitan Arts Centre Belfast and the 14th Venice International Architecture Biennial. Selected artist residencies include Rupert, Frans Masereel Centrum, WIELS,  Jan Van Eyck Academy and VISIO European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images. 

Teresa has released their music and sound works on labels such as Futura Resistenza, Takuroku/Cafè Oto, Hard Return and Umland Editions/Q-2.
