Originally from St. John's, Andrea's video work transforms literary narratives into sophisticated metaphors considering the contemporary contexts of gender, identity and psychological locations. "Oh Darlin'" is a 2006 video work based on the true story of Marguerite de la Rocqueâs survival after banishment to an uninhabited island off the coast of Labrador. In 13 sequences, Cooper reconstructs the character of Marguerite through potent monologues exploring themes of madness, desire and isolation.
