SANDRINE:
Ikọ?

 

OTOBONG:
In Ibibio language it means 'word', 'to have a voice', 'to talk about matter'.

 

SANDRINE:
Matter? But is it cultural? Is it artistic practices? Is it of our times? Of the past?

 

OTOBONG:
It's everything!

 

SANDRINE:
So it's a shift of perception…to expand the horizon...

 

OTOBONG:
Yeah, that's what we're doing ... it touches rivers, land, people…

 

SANDRINE:
So what you mean is… it's outside the artworld, and it's within and beyond, crawling on the side.

 

OTOBONG:
Yes, and let's talk about bodies, materials, meanings, experiences and territories. 
People from different places, multiple practices, how and where they connected.

 

SANDRINE:
Like conversation, music, poetry… all interconnect… inseparable.

OTOBONG:

That's Ikọ!
