In 2013, line kramer and marjolijn kok formed the artist’s collective THE KOKRA FAMILY. One of their goals is researching the concept of family in all its facets through critical art works. They see family as a broad concept and lately they have been focusing on the material aspects. Humour and respect are valued as a key element in their work.
THE KOKRA FAMILY makes visual documentations of wonderment about what we are looking at and why it is in that specific configuration. The visual narrative power of an inventory made the collective look into different material assemblages. They explored the relations between families, peoples’ circumstances, and their material culture by researching the families through their material. During their stay at the KulttuuriKauppila’s residence THE KOKRA FAMILY explored a warehouse with one family living in Ii. The artists presented their work at the artist talk at the Ii library.
