Steven Cohen Sphincterography : The Tour – Johannesburg
[Visual Arts & Performance]
A South African artist of Lithuanian origin now living in France, Steven Cohen questions displacement in a piece which revisits his past Johannesburg performances. Two artists in residence at MAC/VAL, Mary Sibande stages her “clone” dressed as a housemaid and dreaming of another life in photographs and performances, while Mikhael Subotzky’s art renews the codes of humanist photography.
