Georgia Kokot is an American artist, born and raised in Belgium. Her work aims to demonstrate that understanding and commonality are achieved by investigating and revealing the private self. The family theatre is often employed as a tool to explore how people function and position themselves in their environments, and as a means of considering the psychological reasons behind what drives emotion and behaviour.
She uses different types of storytelling to interact with and enter into conversation with the spectator, with themes such as time, death, childhood and memory, fears and desires, and our notions of the 'real' ranking favourite amongst subject matter.
UNTITLED (LIVING IN AN IMMATERIAL WORLD, AND I WAS A MATERIAL GIRL)
All things (yourself included) are busy changing, passing, and sooner or later will cease to be. But there's no sense in doubting whether all you've lived and loved was ever really there. You can remember it, sometimes like it was just yesterday, can't you. And hasn't so much of it seemed even more real with the passing of time? The images of the things in our pictures, doomed as they are, remind us of what was, is, and will forever have been. In memory, you can count on and keep for always something more lasting than any thing in this tangible world. Memory will serve all that which has mattered to you.
