About the work: In her video animations, Nicole Cohen appropriates images of period rooms, such as the French Rococo period room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY) in Champagne Room, 2013. Cohenʼs interventions transform these otherwise still images by unleashing digital animations that add narrative, mystery, excitement and even humor to these spaces. The videos trespass virtually into history, creating a reality that overlaps the past with the present.
