KOLKOZ

Kolkoz is the moniker under which French artists Samuel Boutruche and Benjamin Moreau  present their often divisive, always thought-provoking conceptual work. The duo employs a vast range of mediums. This plurality of method reflects the multi-faceted nature of their artistic goal: to create work based on “activating the powers of representation through the transactions and exchanges” that occur in simultaneous “different realities,” addressing not only the authenticity of experience but also that of simulation. Innovation and potential are key concepts; everything is possible when humankind function as one body. Their work as a duo conceptualizes the idea of community and shared experience; though they are two bodies they function as one artistic mind, and thus their creative output treads a delicate line between individual and communal. Kolkoz’s art engages the viewer on a visual, sensual and intellectual level, challenging them to adjust their perceptions not only of art, but of reality itself. 

“Luna Park” Kolkoz’s collection with Each x Other, follows the duo’s conceptual piece “match  de foot sur la lune” in a synthesis of sport and space. Running shorts and football jerseys are presented in futuristic fabrics and a neutral palette. Certain pieces are embossed with a hexagonal pattern reminiscent of the football itself and others show the birds-eye view of the pitch on a photographic backdrop. This idea of sportsmanship and athletic ability, when combined with the extra-terrestrial, lead to the idea that through community and innovation anything is possible.
