Heart Lines Production Still 2016, Revital Cohen en Tuur Van Balen

Revital Cohen (GB) and Tuur Van Balen (BE) live and work in London. They describe their work as ‘situated practice’: a practice in which the work is created within various networks and whereby the process is every bit as important as the final result. One example is the new trade route they came up with in order to import fireworks from Liuyang in China to Congo, where the fireworks were set off in an open-cast mine (Trapped in the Dream of the Other, 2017); another is their design for an object, the sole purpose of which is to stimulate particular movements in the workers on the production line in a Chinese factory (75 Watt, 2013). These ambitious projects – which often take years to complete in cooperation with specialists from a range of specialist fields – require a great deal of research in advance, and this too makes up an integral part of the work.

Cohen & Van Balen have recently exhibited in Para Site in Hong Kong, at the 7th Moscow Biennale, Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Vienna, Fotomuseum Winterthur, HKW Berlin and Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Their work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and M+ Museum, Hong Kong. The first retrospective exhibition of their work will take place in Z33 in Hasselt in 2019.
