Brussels-based artist Christopher Coppers destroys to create – construction and deconstruction forms the essential elements of his approach. His tools: magazines. By ripping up, cutting in and reshaping the printed matter, Coppers carves out second lives for the magazines he works with, the resulting body of work ranging from installations and large-scale sculptures to smaller, one-off pieces. In his biggest show to date, Brussels' Bodson Emelinckx Gallery shows an overview of his works of the last two years. Entitled 'Trash TV', the show critically explores today's TV culture and media-dependent society. We caught up with the artist the day following his show's opening to ask him about the exhibition, shit TV and why magazines are God.
