Yve Laris Cohen

Part Time Faculty

Yve Laris is an artist whose work incorporates visual art and dance practices and often deals with the body as medium. Laris Cohen frequently utilizes sculptural and architectural elements in his performances and draws upon classical ballet. “Laris Cohen’s performances and attendant installations consider the material conditions by which bodies and objects are created or destabilized, legitimated or devalued… Laris Cohen performatively explores the nature of subjectivity—asking how we come to assume our bodies and by what means they are maintained.
