a GAze of tiME ‘a Gaze of tiME’ has been developed as a site specific performance questioning the concept of imprisonment and death. In this context, Martin Toloku created his own coffin filled with termites in prison cell where Dr Kwame Nkrumah the first president of Ghana was sentenced for 3 years. Martin laid in the coffin of termite inserting himself into the history of Ghana and the struggle for independence while investigating hopes that might have been lost at the time. The performance aimed at evoking emotions and exposing the audience to an internal experience of confinement, struggle to survive and ‘the will to die’ as revolutionaries.

AGBEm) ( life path) .A performance of rebirth, healing dealing with my personal life and how my everyday life experience with spaces and people affect my current and future life . A durational performance where my body is buried in a standing position, leaving only my head and neck  suspending on a ground level left in a mist of termites. An idea borrowed from an outdated practice called "Tokoratorlia" by the people of Anloga a town in the Volta region of Ghana. Where people are punished buried alive in a sacred forest left in the mist of wild birds and other animals who feed on them until they face their death. An experimental performance which explores the idea of life  and death in the presence of time , decay as a continued process rather than a fixed motion and the mortality of all living beings.

Don't miss my live performance at this year's festival #lifeanddeath#decay#termites#Repost@chalewoteofficial (@get_repost) ・・・ Participating artists at CHALE WOTE 2019: Martin Toloku (Ghana) @martintoloku@perfocraze_international . Martin Toloku is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice evolved over the years from carving to installation,performance ,studio practice and collaboration with animals specifically termites. He is fascinated about the deterioration of materials (wood ) by nature and it’s habitat as a result of every day influence of activities of our immediate environment . Collecting from rivers, streams, sea ,lakes and his environment dead woods which he is assisted by his collaborators in a studio practice performing daily rituals as they socialize with each other. This he seeks to experiment and inquire into decay as concept of time,space,life and death, the relationship between humans and these creatures in our natural environment and developing cities. Also he employ the use of outdated newspapers to shelter and feed these creatures which are constantly carving into the wood leaving behind trapped traces of memories ,documentary which are raw reflection of the environment an evidence of time and history. #ChaleWote2019#ChaleWote#pidginimaginarium
