Condemned but reborn. GoLokal explored the continuous cycle of life and death, deep rooted in our culture because of the belief that the spirit that animates the body does not die but is reborn; life is a journey and death, a pit-stop to the next stage. This concept is beautifully portrayed by breathing new life and purpose into what was once destined for the scrapyard.
Each year, the Chale Wote Street Art Festival has created the platform for artists of all types to leave their mark on the city and visitors to interact with public spaces and submerge themselves in the outburst of creativity.
GoLokal’s performance, Agbo Ni Aye: Enjoyment After Death, characterizes how funeral parties, world-renowned for their size and extravagance. are a direct import from Ghana.
