NICOLE COHEN: SUPER VISION features videos and photo-collages that explore perception as viewed through interior spaces and architectural environments. Cohen’s work often overlays past and present imagery, including vintage magazine pages, domestic interiors, period rooms, historical paintings and iconic architectural spaces, to comment on socially constructed space. Using video to transform and alter interior spaces, she delves into ideas of perception, surveillance and the physical experience of immersion. Her work is positioned at the crossroads of contemporary reality, personal fantasy and altered spaces.

SUPER VISION presents work from major projects over the last 20 years including: Contemporary Art Books & New York Public LIbrary, Time Lapse, five small video projections, a group of photographs from the Vintage Project series, several Vintage Collage works, a selection of Intervention videos and a new installation piece.
