She moves (Phase I)
2010-2013 (photography / video/ sculpture/ sound)

6000 photographs, approximately 2,300km selected routes in the congo basin rain forest.

An attempt to re-capture a feeling I had as a child, driving through these forests with my parents. An unknown spirit of moving trees.The mosaics created from her moving stills tend to stop or reduce  individual pictorial  movements, evoking the struggles between  basic impressions and the institutionalised norm.

The photographs were later on printed on transparent film and coated with epoxy resin.

About Em'kal Eyongakpa

Em'kal Eyongakpa (b 1981) , Kɛnyaŋland/Dɛnyaland/ Itinerant. Approaches the experienced, the unknown, as well as collective histories through a ritual use of repetition and transformation, with interwoven installations/performances/soundscapes, that not only blurs the boundaries between employed media, but could also alter the notion of the real and the illusory. Initially trained as a botanist and ecologist, Eyongakpa switched to an interdisciplinary art pursuit, before taking even more time off for reflections around KHaL!LAND/KHaL! SHRINE/KHaL!toPIA. Selected recent exhibitions include 13th Sharjah Biennial 2017, La Biennale de Montréal 2016, 32a Bienal de São Paulo, Negotiations 1-i; Dualaland-Paris (Solo), Kadist art Foundation.
