The Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst is delighted to announce Evan Ifekoya’s first major solo exhibition ~ Resonant Frequencies in Switzerland.

For their exhibition, Ifekoya has created an immersive sound installation that transforms the ground floor of the museum into a multisensory environment for exploring the Divine within us, physically and energetically.

On a quantum level we are more space than matter. Centred around the notion of creating a space for welcoming, several portal units allow for an individual and communal encounter with resonance. Ifekoya invited five collaborators: Rebekah Alero, Rahima Gambo, Maïa Nunes, Maïté Chénière (a.k.a. Mighty), and MINQ—to examine the knowing that emerges in community, by intentionally prioritizing the reality of those who have been systematically excluded from sacred spaces. Through the practice of sound healing as divine inheritance, Ifekoya questions how we learn to listen to resonance; further exploring the possibility of attuning individual resonances to inner light beyond the darkness.

Ifekoya’s work is informed by wisdom keepers inside and outside of indigenous traditions and practices with the elevation of black and queer consciousness in mind. Through multiple forms of embodied, ancestral and spiritual practices, with a particular focus on the use of rhythmic sound they investigate what it means to make a way of life, despite living under constant state violence.

An accompanying publication designed by Studio Marie Lusa with contributions by Kojo Abudu, Michael Birchall, Evan Ifekoya and Grace Ndiritu will be published by Scheidegger & Spiess in March 2022.
