À propos

Kofke understands a culture through media that has been abandoned, discarded, or abrogated. He uses salvage ethnography in his art practice as a method to attribute meaning to events and artifacts of the past. His projects empathize with communal historical experiences and attempt to make sense of the present through a re-exploration of a common history. Kofke’s projects attempt to lessen the divide between scientific specialization and lay knowledge; he focuses on issues of climate change, race, gender, science and industry in the early 21st century.

Kofke is a recipient of a 2018 Idea Capital Travel Grant, 2015 Atlanta Cultural Affairs Grant (Elevate), 2011 Artadia Grant and a 2009 Idea Capital Project Grant. He has been awarded residencies at The Arctic Circle Project in Svalbard, Norway, The Canadian Wilderness Residency Program in Whitehorse, Canada, ARCUS Project in Tokyo, Japan, La Wayaka Desert Residency in the Atacama Desert of Chile, Waas Residency in the Sahara of Mauritania, Old School Residency in Gorna Lipnitsa, Bulgaria, Milkwood Residency in the Czech Republic, Odysseys Residency in Costa Rica, Long Stories Project in Perm, Russia, ArtPrint Residence in Barcelona, Spain, Living Walls Conference in Atlanta, The Creatives Project Residency in Atlanta, the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, and the Elizabeth Foundation in New York City.

Kofke’s work has been exhibited at the A4 Center for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney, Australia, the HIGH Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Telfair Museum in Savannah, ARCUS Studio in Moriya, Japan, Jack the Pelican Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC, FLUX projects in Atlanta, Kai Lin Gallery in Atlanta, The Elizabeth Foundation in NYC, Fuse Gallery, NYC, The Gallery of China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, Arthouse Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC, Artspace Gallery in Richmond, VA, and RED Gallery in Savannah GA.
