Em’kal Eyongakpa

mɔ ntai bɛrɨ #3 (so batu), 2022

Performance on 25.06.2022

Em’kal Eyongakpa's ideas and artistic experiences, habitually mimics, evokes or employs the elements and natural processes, phenomena. His ideas increasingly draw from indigenous knowledge systems, ethnobotany, applied mycology and technology.
For Meia-noite, Eyongakpa collaborated with writer and singer Barbara Gwanmesia (Angwi Mbongeuh Tarh) in a sound performance which will happen on the last weekend of the biennial, that attempts a suggestive language aimed at the transcription of intercepted messages (real/imaginary) with varying degrees of opacity while drawing from varied click techniques used in a variety of indigenous languages on the African continent and also in bat echolocation clicks via ultrasonic recordings of the bat.
