Introducing: Deville Cohen

Residency Dates: April 15-21, 2013

Deville Cohen ( Combining elements of theater, sculpture, collage, and cinematography, he is interested in the ways in which an individual interacts with their surrounding environment, both imagined and physically present. In negotiating the spaces between the real and the represented, object and subject, the alienated and the integrated, Cohen tries to create a language that manifests an idiosyncratic system of relations and understanding. This system establishes a new context; a closed narrative in which aspects of this system are being exhausted, revealing not only its fragility but also the ephemeral, jerry-rigged qualities of the logic that shapes our understanding and appreciation of the real. Cohen was born in Tel Aviv, and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY
