EKU EKU EKU (a call to death)

Goethe-Institut Virtual Partnership Residency

HYENAZ and crazinisT artisT paired up during the month of April 2021 to explore the theme of death through a simultaneous deep listening journey in their respective homes (Kumasi, Ghana and Berlin, Germany). After the deep listening, field recording and filming (with the help of Sally Dige in Berlin and Ohsoh Edward in Kumasi) they created a new audio visual work.

Spectral Rite

August 27 & 31, 2014: National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul:

Created by Sylbee Kim, HYENAZ and Nico Pelzer. Site-specific procession presented at MULTI-ARTS PROJECT II Annyeong! Hello!

Through the aural and visual act of the procession, Spectral Rite explores the architectural condition and the institutional environment of MMCA Seoul. Berlin-based performance duo HYENAZ incarnate as androgynous celestial beings, beautiful monsters, hybrid street peddlers and warriors for justice. Their presence evokes remote yet acquainted spaces, archaic and future tenses, as they appear within the MMCA as familiar strangers.
