WHAT TO COLLECT # 133. Danielle Cohen

ARTIST’S STATEMENT I am trying to test the body and fuzziness as they appear in my private life, I deal with gender, pain, relationship or entity. I Especially enjoyed testing the limits of suffering, the border between Erotica pornography and documentary as well as the line between the personal and intimate private and public spheres.

Untitledinvites contemplation: by circumnavigating the work we become an integral part of the whole, thus making every viewer’s experience of the piece subtly different. Untitled forms…

From the personal prospectives to the outside world we are studying identities in action through the different art technics. I see art as a dominant element which contains a range of conceptual meanings and theoretical roles associated with it. If you think that your work has a strong manifestation and deserves the personal attention of the gallery, you shouldn’t wait with submission. Check out galleries that you think may like your work.
