Kokolia/Epiphany Tote Bag

£5.00

Kokolia/Epiphany Tote Bag

This canvas tote bag accompanies Vladimír Kokolia’s exhibition Epiphany at Ikon.

It features a print of an image from Kokolia’s Big Cycle (1983–1989), a large number of fragile figurative ink drawings which are on display at Ikon for the first time after more than thirty years in storage.

Produced in an atmosphere of suppression and depicting grotesque stories of cruelty, weakness and the wretchedness of human endeavour, these early works acquired a sense of political commentary. Big Cycle show human figures struggling for a glimpse of meaning in absurd circumstances.
