Welcome to KOOKERVILLE! The world where your inner child goes to when it’s been lost…
RSVP on Facebook

This world is manifested in the form of creatures, called KOOKERS, that playfully roam around New York City (and beyond), unaware of the social constructs we have created. Their large scale, bright colours, and outlandish demeanour create spontaneous moments of joy, human connection, and social disruption through play and absurdity, breaking people from their daily routines. Recent additions to this world are wearable landscapes and playful puppets. Laboriously and lovingly crafted from found and recycled materials, this body of work explores the intersection between craft and play, art and accessibility. 

Creator, Lexy Ho-Tai, invites you to not only enter this evolving world, but to create and contribute to it. Tap into your inner child! There will be materials available and workshops throughout the weekend. Explore with your hands! Kreate a Kooker! Paint on the wall! Play and express! (Even if you’re “not an artist”.) This is an evolving space. Everyone that enters the world will add to it. 
 
This is a family-friendly weekend. Feel free to bring recycled materials to repurpose and contribute to the space. If you have ideas for a workshop you would like to share, please email Lexy at lexyhotai@gmail.com.
 
KOOKERVILLE serves as a temporary escape – a world of healing through joy, colour, imagination and expression, made with immense care and love. Alternative worlds provide opportunities to re-evaluate the world around us, and imagine new possibilities, albeit absurd or kooky.
