Steven Cohen: Taste
Steven Cohen: Taste © Pierre Planchenault
Calling him a bird of paradise would be an understatement. While it’s fair to say that Steven Cohen’s elaborate costume creations look as if they came from another star, the South African artist is clearly not a fashion designer, and he uses the fantastic decorations of his body exclusively for his performances and video works. Taste features two films and a live performance. This work by a taboo breaker with the courage to provoke even in public space shows, among other things, how a penis ended up in a ballet shoe and how one may get arrested with a cockerel on a lead.
