Em’kal Eyongakpa (CM, 1981) draws upon indigenous knowledge systems, ethnobotany, applied mycology, and technology in his work. During Amsterdam Art Week, he presents Untitled t-XII ; untitled XIIbabhi- manyɛ p/ babhi-bawɛ t , (mbaŋ): a fragment of a larger immersive sonic sculptural installation Untitled Mba ŋ (2020–present). This reflects his ongoing research into portals, crossings, ancient community preservation practices and water, in relation to movements from the Gulf of Guinea and beyond.
