Inside the Pillow Lab: Yve Laris Cohen
Inside the Pillow Lab is an intimate new film series that captures works in process and behind-the-scenes moments of what it’s like for artists to live, work, and rehearse together again in COVID-compliant residencies on the Pillow’s retreat-like campus. New York-based artist Yve Laris Cohen makes installations and performances that traverse the visual arts and dance. Exploring questions of labor and value, Laris Cohen’s work stages trauma and care, conflict and support, vulnerability and dependency. In the Pillow Lab, Laris Cohen developed a new work using the remains of the Doris Duke Theatre, which burned on the Jacob’s Pillow campus in November 2020.
