The London-based artist duo look at processes of production as cultural, personal and political practices. They were the recipients of the CCI x SHS Experimental Technology Fellowship 2023, offering a unique development and commission opportunity for an artist looking to incorporate new technology within their work.
Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen's practice could be thought of as ‘situated’, where the making of the work is performed within particular networks. The extraction of minerals has been a long-standing interest, followed by the many forms of reality generated by the gambling industry. Animal bodies (human or otherwise) are a recurring consideration; in particular how these are shaped by the situations in which they operate. Rehearsals seem to return as well.
Their work was recently exhibited at Ghost 2565, Bangkok; The Serpentine Galleries, London; The 13th Shanghai Biennale at the Power Station of Art; Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; The Renaissance Society, Chicago; Para Site, Hong Kong; HKW in Berlin and Congo International Film Festival, Goma. It is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and M+ Museum, Hong Kong.
