Em'kal Eyongakpa approaches the experienced and the unknown, as well as collective histories, through a ritual use of repetition and transformation.
His interwoven installations can be experienced as paradoxical systems. They blur the boundaries between the employed media and can alter the notion of the real and the illusory.
Eyongakpa's recent interventions increasingly explore ethnobotany, ethnomycology, transgenerational memories and indigenous systems, as well as the universal.
