Nikolai Kozak: Cáfila / Cohue / Host Nikolai Kozak

Cáfila | Cohue | Host

Three hands sporting the symbols of revolution and social change are slowly destroyed by a mass of contained termites. The ephemerality of the object and its inevitable destruction by the collective invokes the problematic of the individual in relation to actions and the futility of fetishizing revolutionary ideals.


Nikolai Kozak is a Chilean | Argentine multimedia artist based in New York City and Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). Working in a variety of media - including sculpture, video, projection, photography and performance - Kozak explores concepts dealing with memory, lineage, traumatic events, repressive structures and archival documentation.
