Andrew Durbin speaks to the artist and director Matt Copson about his loves, hates and dreams. Copson  – who recently directed an opera adaptation of Last Days by Gus Van Sant – imagines a themed restaurant serving life and death, passes judgment on overrated actors and directors, and celebrates maximalism, McDonalds and the iconic Coronation Chicken sandwich.  

This is the first in a new series of videos from Frieze’s gallery, No.9 Cork Street, where we welcome cultural personalities to have a chat at reception. Coming soon, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and the artist James Nares speak to Selvi May Akyildiz, director of No.9 Cork Street.
