Marc Kokopeli (b. 1987) lives and works in New York. His work is overly concerned with how identity is formed during childhood. This could range from the infantilization of the subject, to how artistic discourse can be framed by educational curriculum. Recent work includes the making of Pampertaarten: a materials driven approach to the representation of the unborn child.
Recent solo exhibitions include Die Pampertaarten, Reena Spaulings, New York (2022); Elly 2003-2018, The Wig, Berlin (2021); How to Start a High-School Underground (with Adam Martin), Etablissement D’En Face, Brussels (2019); 90% Years Later, Lomex, New York (2018); Tales of the Veil, Edouard Montassut, Paris (2017); Songs of Hammy’s, Lomex, New York (2016). Recent group exhibitions include La réforme de Pooky, Kunsthalle Friart, Fribourg (2022); The Holding Environment - Parts I & II, Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2021).
From July to September 2022, Marc Kokopeli is artist resident in the program Zu Gast bei Urbane Künste Ruhr in Essen.
