PIPA 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2016 nominee.

Felipe Cohen’s practice develops from the tension between traditional and contemporary forms of disposing the artistic object and from the study and rescue of recurring problems in the history of art with the intent of reinterpreting and updating their meanings in the present. This tension occurs through the articulation of noble materials with banal objects of everyday use, thus creating both paradoxical forms that are forced to coexist intimately, and symbolic updates of classical signs and genres in a dialectic process.
