We are proud to announce the launch of the limited edition Artist Blend in support of The Kochi Biennale Foundation. For this first edition, we feature artist duo Thukral and Tagra, known for their pop visual language using a variety of media including interactive games that engage the public while bringing important issues to light. The Artist Blend features their work Bread, Circuses & TBD, 2018 which focuses on their ongoing investigation into ‘kushti’, a traditional form of wrestling practiced across India and especially by farming communities, highlighting the trials and tribulations of these communities. Their involvement has evolved to support the establishment of a kitchen, run by the families of farmers that have been affected by suicides in order to provide meals for their children.
We are especially grateful to Thukral and Tagra for giving us this opportunity to feature their work, paving the way for future collaborations with artists.
All the proceeds from the sale of the Artist Blend will be directed to help strengthen The Kochi Biennale Foundation’s efforts to bring art to the public through The Kochi-Muziris Biennale.
