    About The Work

    In Bodywork Roof, Detroit-based artist Liz Cohen poses in a baby pink bikini on the hood of the Trabantamino, a hybrid car she constructed by melding an East German Trabant — a symbol of the socialist Soviet Union—with a Chevrolet El Camino — the ultimate embodiment of American muscle and over-abundance. By adopting the objectified role of pin-up girl adorning a vehicle she built with her own hands, Cohen is able to hybridize her own body, becoming both sex symbol and car mechanic. She challenges the perception of both roles, but even more, she dominates the vehicle underneath her.
