About Em'kal Eyongakpa

Em'kal Eyongakpa (b1981, Mamfe, Cameroons) approaches the experienced, the unknown, as well as collective histories through a ritual use of repetition and transformation. His recent ideas increasingly draw from indigenous knowledge systems and aesthetics, ethnobotany, applied mycology and technology, in his explorations of the personal and the universal. He is also known for self organised community research spaces and autonomous art hubs, from KHaL! SHRINE in Yaounde (2007-2012), to the recent research platform/ fund Bɔ́ Bɛtɔk/ ɛfukuyu. Eyongakpa holds degrees in Plant biology and Ecology from the University of Yaounde 1 and was a resident at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. The artist's work has recently been exhibited at the Jakarta Biennale (2017), the 13th Sharjah biennial (2017), La Biennale de Montreal (2016), the 32nd Bienal de Sao Paulo (2016), 9th and 10th Bamako Encounters(2011,2015), 10th Dak'art biennial (2012) and several international art spaces and museums around the world.
