‘BE-side(s) work – Em’kal Eyongakpa, friends and traces 2014-2009’ is the first artist’s book by the Cameroonian artist curated by Em’kal Eyongakpa with Amal Alhaag.
‘A thought-provoking puzzle, covering parameters of rites, coded-languages, rituals and mundane routines–unified, these lingua francas of parallel veracities construct deeper notions and imagery that underlie and challenge concepts of imaginations, dialogism, meaning and reality. At the end of the day, all that’s left is to wander follow the traces, and loose track of time in this publication.’ (Curator Amal Alhaag)
