Cooper & Gorfer

I Know Not These My Hands

This book is about the ubiquitous traces a troubled history leaves on the human mind. Based on a comprehensive research travel to northwestern Argentina, Cooper and Gorfer investigate questions of identity and displacement through interviews and photographic meetings with people from different levels within the Argentinian society and adjacent lands. Reflections on colonial wounds, forced migration, and more recent political turmoil surface throughout the book’s notes and dialogs, manifesting in the narrative and poetic imagery so indicative of Cooper and Gorfer’s work. Seamlessly navigating between image and anecdotes, I KNOW NOT THESE MY HANDS, speaks of the human aspect of love, loss and identity.

Cooper & Gorfer comprises the artists Sarah Cooper (b. 1974, USA) and Nina Gorfer (b. 1979, Austria). The artist duo is known for their distinct hybrid aesthetics. Thematically, their photo-based work often revolves around issues of cultural identity.
