Barrick Film Presents Deville Cohen

During the month of April, the UNLV Barrick Museum will kickoff its occasional Barrick Films series with New York based filmmaker Deville Cohen.

Cohen’s films POISON (2011) and Cabbage Tree (2007) will be shown inside of the Barrick’s auditorium:

Tuesdays (9am - 3pm)
Thursdays (9am - 3pm)
Saturdays (12am - 5pm)

Cohen combines elements of theater, sculpture, college, and cinematography in his films as he explores the ways in which individuals interact with their surrounding environment, both imagined and physically present. Sets, characters, and props become entangled in psychic dramas saturated with humor, desire, and anxiety.The protagonists of POISON, an 8-ball and a die, meet at a gas station and hit the road, meeting various natural and man-made scenes, composed entirely of photocopies, paperclips, ladders, and other improvisations.

“We’re excited to kickoff the Barrick Films series with the work of Deville Cohen,” said managing director Aurore Giguet, “Cohen’s use of black-and-white Xerox images create a fragile delicate environment that reflects on the collapsible nature of human logic and relations. Something I think we can easily relate to in Las Vegas.”

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER: Deville Cohen (born in Tel Aviv, Israel, 1977) lives and works in New York, NY. He received his MFA from Bard College in 2010. His work was included in Greater New York, 2010, PS1, NY; Stagecraft, University of South Florida Institute for Research in Art, 2011; BOMBbash, Marlborough Chelsea, 2011; D. COHEN, A KOSCHMEIDER, J.
