For the first time, at Disjecta, Deville Cohen will have the opportunity to create a large sculptural installation in which to screen the new work, placing the viewer directly into his imagined scenes.
Deville Cohen who born in Israel, and lives and works in New York, premieres, “ZERO”, his most recent video inspired in part by the television crime drama The X-Files. His interest in idiosyncratic systems of relations and understanding leads to taking closed narrative forms, like the television show structure of a crime scene, investigation and resolution, only to twist it apart. Influenced by theater, sculpture, cinematography and collage, he creates abstract psychic dramas that are clearly handmade, but nonetheless visually and structurally complex.
