THE COFFIN REDESIGNED FOR THE 21st CENTURY
GOOD FOR THE PLANET AND GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL.
21 KOFFINS Decorated through a public call out forms an exhibition entitled ‘Who We Are Now’
Koffins & Who We Are Now’ has been inspired by ideological challenges around life and death, art, culture, and the funeral industry. It is a conduit for contributing to the wider recognition of the significance of art in conceptualising our future, challenging norms, creating alternative experiences of value, facilitating new understanding, knowledge and choice in a direct way with immediate impact.
full size Koffins will be diverse observations and provocations questioning ownership, authorship, taboos, values, traditions and cultural practices. This is an artwork and disruptive product that can challenge the 73% increase in costs of funerals over the last 10 years.
. If artists are the traders in ideas, then why can not these ideas then support our practice?
