About me:.. .. CFT BIOGRAPHY
Born in Hull, Cosey began her career in music and art during 1969, appearing in art performances and musical improvisations in Hull until 1972. In 1973, Cosey moved to London and continued working as a performance artist representing Britain at the 9th Paris Biennale,1975 and Arte Inglese Oggi,1976. She also performed in Belgium, Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Austria, USA and Canada until 1980.
Throughout the period 1973 - 1980 Cosey was exhibiting, contributing to mail art exhibitions and performing in other group exhibitions around the world. Often working naked in her performances, Cosey went on to investigate self-image within the context of sex magazines and sex films, glamour modelling and striptease acts. Her experiences within these industries during the period 1973 - 1984 were brought into her art work as she explored the many aspects of sex as it is perceived and transacted as commercial product. She placed conventional beauty in a situation where it was subjected to simulated mutilation before a live audience. This provided a visual contrast highlighting and questioning the notion of what is presentable as 'beauty'.
In her infamous exhibition 'Prostitution' at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, 1976 Cosey Fanni Tutti occupied multiple roles; artist, model, musician, and herself. Music was used in some of Cosey's performances in preference to spoken language, which she considered an obstacle to her visual presentations. She continued to explore the use of sound, scientifically, politically, commercially and as a means of physical pleasure or pain. In 1976 she co-founded the group Throbbing Gristle with Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge. They broke the rules of established music and its contextual business practice, ultimately becoming successful with their own record label, Industrial Records. In 1981 Cosey immersed herself in creating music and video with partner Chris Carter under the name Chris & Cosey most recently performing and recording as Carter Tutti. Their joint musical and video collaborations, some 32 albums, have met with continuing international success. In 1994 Cosey returned to the art world and she now exhibits worldwide. She works closely with and is represented by Cabinet, London.
Cosey's art practice takes its place alongside her ongoing collaborations with many artists and musicians and continuing audio and performance work with Chris Carter and latterly the re-grouping of Throbbing Gristle and re-launching of Industrial Records.
