Recoquo is latin for remodel, readjust, alter, recast, transfashion, change. Coquo means to cook. Re:coquo invites artists and designers to revisit work, ideas and material which lay discarded or forgotten, and recreate it anew.
The exhibition and resulting new works honour the value of the almost-discarded as well as generate a discourse around regeneration, recasting and rendering the physical and psychic value in what already exists.
re:coquo celebrates being resourceful, creative, optimistic, risk-taking, contemplative, creative and flexible, both on a personal level and as qualities that will create a better future for the planet and its inhabitants.
This exhibition launches with an opening night event on Thursday March 25th from 6-8pm
