Kin Coda is an exhibition featuring the collaborative work of WE-ARE-FAMILIA and the Danish furniture company Fritz Hansen. WE-ARE-FAMILIA is a worldwide network of artists who have come together to complete 25 Keepsake Boxes that feature approximately 40 original “mementos” contributed by the artists themselves. Each box features found and recycled materials assembled together to exhibit ordinary things but in a new way. Eleven of the 25 boxes were previously completed and boxes 12 through 25 will be on display at the Fritz Hansen showroom in New York City from November 17th through November 23rd, 2011.
Above is We-Are-Familia Keepsake Box No. 22 of 25, entitled “Household”. Designed by Steph Mantis, 2011. Made with a Kasper Salto Nap Chair base, an Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chair, various Fritz Hansen fabrics and vinyls and an enclosed set of works by We-Are-Familia artists.
