Mundos Creados III

Laura Cohen

NO TITLE

Mexico City: one of the largest cities in the world. So many people, so many faces. So many moods, so many thoughts. Laura Cohen lives and works in this megapolis. She knows a few fellow-residents well, but of many of her compatriots she knows nothing, let alone what is going on in their heads. Yet all these people leave behind an impression on Cohen, and she can identify with what she feels of others. She tries to give form to these feelings in her work. It involves abstract concepts such as chaos, destiny and neurosis, which largely define her own life and that of her compatriots. Cohen's modified photography enlarges on the series 'Translated Realities', which in 1999 was included in the Noorderlicht exhibition 'Wonderland' in Groningen. Then she manipulated her still lifes and staged studio photographs in triptychs. Now the images regularly run through in diptychs of sheets of photographic paper overlapping one another.
