THIS BOOK IS ONLY AVAILABLE AS PART OF THE FULL SET OF TAXI ART BOOKS.
Steven Cohen is a pioneering artist whose work provocatively confronts issues of identity. Best known for his live performances, Cohen appears not only on stage and in galleries but also, uninvited, in public spaces. His work deals with outsider identity, using his own and others’ bodies to create ‘living art’ that references sculpture, contemporary dance, drag and performance art.
This book is a comprehensive introduction to Cohen’s work, from his silk-screened canvases and furniture to his ‘living art’ performances. The essay and extensive captions, written by Shaun de Waal and Robyn Sassen, provide a conceptual and theoretical framework for approaching Cohen’s art, while tracing its development over time. The numerous colour reproductions selected by photo editor John Hodgkiss reveal the brilliance of this large body of work.
