La Cocina is pleased to initiate its programme of residency with French artist Éric Stephany, who is notably one of the participants of the Incomplete Reading Group.
Born in France in 1970, Éric Stephany studied architecture at the École d’Architecture de Paris La Villette, and art history at the Université Paris IV. His work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions internationally. Exploring different aspects of architecture and its history, Stephany’s work unravels architecture’s unconscious and buried tropes. In so doing, his work seeks to provoke a series of ambivalent emotions or states of mind such as fear, hysteria, sadness, anticipation, awe, or languor, which he considers a possible definition of art.
