Kith & Kin

The Kith and Kin series is the culmination of a collaboration between Brigit and Tobias. Their work is rooted in a common sensibility and approach to telling stories, whether visual or textual, and a main focus of their collaboration, reflected in this series, is family, connections, what holds these relationships together, and what stresses cause them to break down. More broadly, the theme of distress is viewed through the distorted and sometimes surreal lens of Brigit’s depictions of the human body and Tobias’s flash fiction stories.
The exhibition Kith & Kin was held in 2013 and the opening was combined with the launch of their book, Snake in the Grass and Other Stories, a collection of flash fiction and short stories, illustrated by artwork from their collaborative project.
