A Year Ago…

… the Finnish Exhibition of Countries and Regions Fluid Stages curated by KOKIMO was exhibited at PQ19 in Prague. The starting point of the concept for Fluid Stages was an experience of the world as a scenographic landscape: as stage, as montage, as a series of scenes. By focusing one’s perception and sharpening the senses, the artworks included in the Finnish national exhibition enabled a multisensory reading of various layers of existence. Fluid Stages concept consisted of the exhibit including the ongoing site-sensitive installation by KOKIMO & the Fluid Stages Performance by KOKIMO and of seven independent performative Finnish satellite artworks around Prague.

We’ ll recall the unique PQ19 festival and throw back some photos in the coming days. And once more, thank you to all of the artists, cooperators and supporters for working with us!

Stay safe and have a wonderful summer!

Love,
KOKIMO

🌱10-vuotiaan KOKIMOn kevätterveiset🌱

Hei!

Kuluva vuosi on KOKIMOn 10-vuotisjuhlavuosi. Suunnittelemme parhaillaan juhlaesitystämme, joka saa ensi-iltansa vuoden kuluttua, kevään 2021 versoessa esiin.

Taiteilijaryhmä KOKIMO on perustettu Helsingissä vuonna 2010. KOKIMOn jäsenet ovat Kristian Ekholm, Markus Heino, Raisa Kilpeläinen, Viljami Lehtonen, Anna Murtola, Veera-Maija Murtola, Anna Pöllänen ja Salla Salin. Kaikki KOKIMOn jäsenet työskentelevät tahoillaan teatterin, tanssin, esitystaiteen, musiikin ja kuvataiteen parissa ja yhdessä KOKIMOna toimiessaan, heidän työskentelynsä tapahtuu yhteistoiminnallisesti ja kollektiivisesti. KOKIMO on esitystaiteen kentän indie-toimija – toimimme täysin vapaana taiteilijaryhmänä.

KOKIMO tutkii suhdetta ympäristöömme sekä siitä syntyviä kokemuksellisia havaintoja, esityksellisiä keinoja käyttäen. KOKIMO painottaa esityksissään ympäristölle herkistymistä, moniaistisuutta sekä kokijuutta katsojuuden sijaan. Ryhmä työskentelee tila- ja paikkasensitiivisesti. KOKIMO pyrkii ottamaan toiminnassaan huomioon ekologiset ja eettiset arvot.

KOKIMOlle tärkeitä ajatuksia taiteellisessa työssä ovat:

Kuka tahansa voi tehdä esityksen.
Katsomo on kokimo ja se on kaikkialla.
Tila on aina tilanne.
KOKIMO on väline ajatteluun ja elämyksiin, sisäisiin spektaakkeleihin.

Aurinkoista kevättä kaikille lukijoillemme, tukijoillemme ja kokijoillemme sekä kaikille yhteistyökumppaneillemme ja kaikille KOKIMOn ystäville!

Voimia poikkeustilaan!

Terveisin,
KOKIMO
