Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen: Daughter of Dog

23 March 2024 - 29 June 2024

Exhibition

Daughter of Dog is an exhibition of newly commissioned works by Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen. 

Moving across film, sculpture and sound, the show is occupied with forms of aggression, love and loss. Starting from an exploration of grief, the exhibition engages with complex emotions and their non-binary nature, and in a broader sense with reality as a composition of contradictions. The works are displayed as a constellation that looks at the void and the entanglements it holds; hyper alert, capricious, blooming, fragmented and messy.

The film of the same name is made following non-traditional methods of music composition and songwriting; bringing together (camera and body) movement, text and images to construct a score performed by carnivorous plants, a robot dog, atlas moths, german shepherds and dancers rehearsing the choreography of a pogo mosh pit. 

Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen (UK/BE, b.1981, based in London) work across objects, installation and film. Their collaborative work explores processes of production and the tensions between the organic and artificial.

Daughter of Dog is curated by Kalliopi Tsipni Kolaza, Curator of Visual Art, Mostyn, and kindly supported by the Foundation Foundation and Somerset House.
