Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen

Born in 1981, based in London, UK.

Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen work across objects, installation and film to explore processes of production as cultural, personal and political practices. Their practice could be thought of as ‘situated’, where the making of the work is performed within particular networks.
The choreography of labour and extraction of minerals have been long-standing interests, 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.
Recent exhibitions include Heavens, Serpentine Galleries (London, 2021); The World is in You, Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen, 2021); Bodies of Water, The 13th Shanghai Biennale, Power Station of Art (Shanghai, 2021); Ti con Zero, Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Rome, 2021). Their work is in the permanent collections of the MoMA, New York and M+ Museum, Hong Kong.
