“TURN” by COCO SCHWARZ & ALINA MANN

Published: 11.10.2019

The “Turn” project by Coco Schwartz and Alina Mann provides a new perspective on corporeality and interaction between individuals. Their exhibition is a holistic statement in which artists explore the metamorphoses of the body, and also address the theme of the unity of man and nature. Their works represent an alternative for the heteronormativity in society and attempts to present a different corporeality and propose other sexuality.

Coco Schwarz & Alina Mann are visual artists based in Zurich/Switzerland who started to collaborate together in 2016. They like to challenge the conceptions of gender identity, sexuality and taboos. As a medium they use video, sculptures and sound. Their artworks have been shown in selected festivals and exhibitions in Europe, America and Asia. “Turn” is their first solo exhibition.

Alina Mann is the pseudonym for the artist Alina Kopytsa, who was a finalist in the 2012 MUHi competition and PinchukArtCentre Prize in 2013 and is currently studying at the University of Zurich.

Coco Schwartz is a pseudonym for a Swiss pianist and composer who writes music for performances, installations, films and ensembles, as well as gives concerts and, in particular, played in New York’s Carnegie Hall.
