Bokja is the skin, a surface, the external expression, dealing primarily with textiles to create tactile and personable objects. Its signature is a visually chaotic assembly of fabric pieces stitched together to form a unified message. Bokja brings together poetic fragments of time and place and situates them in unusual arrangements; a rich and unexpected visual language is created.
Textile making and embellishment has been a significant part of Middle Eastern craft for several millenia. Bokja unearths this age-old tradition, redefining it in a contemporary voice. Bokja’s textile laboratory is composed of a solid network of specialized artisans, serving as a preserver of textile practices and a gatherer of stories.
The sphere, al-kura in Arabic, is regularly associated with concepts of equality, completeness and unity. It is used to understand and represent things like atomic particles as well as astronomical bodies in space, like the sun, moon and earth.
