ilke cop

Ilke Cop (°1988, Brussels, BE) lives and works in Brussels. Cop received her Master’s in art history and cultural management, was top graduate of the fashion department of SASK and is currently studying painting at the academy of Anderlecht. In 2016, her label ILKECOP won the Future of Fashion award. Taking on questions surrounding the position of ‘the female’ and the role of women as people, artists and historical agents, Ilke Cop’s practice creates a fictional universe where the laws and causal relationships that shape our society no longer apply. Traditional techniques of oil painting are embraced to venture into a new visual language of conceptually layered images. Let your innate desire for beauty, seduction and narrative guide your eye.
