Research output: Book/ReportBook


The practice of Chen Cohen (*1983, Katzrin, Israel; lives and works in Tel Aviv-Yafo) stems from the incessant operation of a camera placed in front of her in intimate situations; however, the results of such practice are works of art in a wide range of materials, techniques, dimensions and modes of display. In front of that running camera, Cohen’s body is changing constantly due to a degenerative chronic disease. On the occasion of her solo exhibition at CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo, the artist presents a selection of works created since 2013, works that narrate the tensions between pain and beauty, between physical and spiritual efforts, ultimately using art to express and resolve such tensions. --
