The Iyagbons Spiegel [mirror] project began in Graz in 2018 with residencies and a workshop series. In a continuous exchange between the sculptor Samson Ogiamien and the performance group Onyrikon, it was developed further and will be premiered in this year’s festival. The performance plays with the numerous levels of meaning of artworks, which can be contemporary, traditional and ritualistic at the same time. Works of art that serve as a link between different cultures, belief systems and worlds. An exciting mirroring of cultures.
