Em'kal Eyongakpa, Untitled 1, 2011
2011

Em'kal Eyongakpa was born in Cameroon in 1981. After obtaining a postgraduate diploma in Botany and Ecology, he decided to concentrate exclusively on visual and sound art. His use of poetic, symbolic and surrealistic imagery is often sprinkled with paradoxes that challenge the obvious. His work explores human conditioning over time in relation to information, ideological consumption, freedom and identity crises.

The Paris Collection, established in 2001, is not bound by geography or media and consists of works by artists from many different regions. Its particularity is also to support artists through commissioned productions.

Besides the founding family members, and the Kadist-Paris staff, the Paris Collection committee comprises Jeremy Lewison, advisor, critic and curator, Rozenn Prat, Professor of Visual Arts, and Jean-Marc Prevost, director of the Carré d’Art, contemporary art Museum of Nîmes.
