Highlights Who is Who
Arnaud Cohen
Lives and works in Paris and Vienne, France

(b. 1968, Paris) lives and works between Paris and his island factory-workshop in Cenon sur Vienne, France. Cohen’s work explores the relationship between history and fiction and contemporary and postmodern mythologies. Producing multiform and protean works, Cohen often draws from Situationist traditions to unpack frames of allegory, hyperreality and globalisation. His techniques of appropriation extend across social and aesthetic forms from the character of Mickey Mouse to reality television. His work has been exhibited and performed extensively in exhibitions and biennales. Recent presentations include Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016) and forthcoming are Hunting Season, a solo exhibition organised by Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin (2017), BIENALSUR, Buenos Aires (2017) and Something Else, Off Biennale Cairo (2017).
