Lecture and Late Night with Victor Ekpuk
“Ode to Joy – Meditation in Lines” by Victor Ekpuk

Thursday, August 21, 2014 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

6 p.m. Lecture, Museum and Restaurant open until 9 p.m.

State of Beings (Totem), installation at Dak'Art 2014, 2013, acrylic vinyl and metal on wood panel and vinyl mat, installation, 220 x 510 x 452 x 4 cm, photo: Mabeye Deme

Watch and learn as artist Victor Ekpuk talks about creating a wall-sized, ephemeral drawing in paint markers, inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” from his Ninth Symphony. This is the first time that Ekpuk will draw from music. Like most wall drawings in museums, Ekpuk’s Ode to Joy will be destroyed at the end of the exhibition. The ephemeral nature of the work adds to the intensity of experience while it is on the wall. Ekpuk’s drawings, whether on paper or on walls, make their way around the world through photography and the internet. In this way, they are shared with audiences scattered in both space and time.
