We are KRÆ. We are creatures. We are a syndicate of creatures who believe that the world needs radical rethinking.
While the capitalistic autocannibliism devours our nature, feasts on all living creatures and living growths; while we humans becomes a bottomless gap of insatiable needs, in a splintered world, where reflection hurts as the world is spinning in the wrong direction; we turn into disturbing creatures – we become KRÆ – creatures identifying with critters and growths, emerging as beings of the earth.
We want to create an experimental non-profit environment for rethinking; we start by dealing with the grotesque, the absurd, the rejected, and the elements of nature, the roots, the robots and death.
We use art and poetic collaboration as a gateway to disturb our fossilized mind-sets and awaken numb senses.
