Born in Avignon, France. Lives and works in New York, USA. Coco Dolle is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores perceptions of the body, sexuality and gender. She studied dance at Paris Marais Dance School in France, and visual arts at The Art Students League of New York. Over the past decade, Coco has developed a mode of working that merges the roles of artist, curator and performer. Her drawings and paintings invite a contemplation on female identity, women's empowerment and the construction of the self. Her performance art, the Legacy Fatale Project , combines movement, social practice and the politics of resistance together with notions of mysticism and female leadership. As a curator, she aims for challenging conversations on feminism and inclusivity using her entity Milk and Night Curatorial.
