Of gods. Of bure-kalou. A body shedding. A body becoming. This is the call to come home. ’GOD-HOUSE’ is a visual collaboration from artists Jahra Wasasala and Jocelyn Janon that magnifies the rapturous returning of the previously disembodied. This photographic collaboration was part of Jahra Wasasala's dance embodiment of 'GOD-HOUSE' which premiered live in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2019, and is a visceral and confronting recognition of divinity, horror and the reality of shedding an old world to become a new one. This visual exhibition showcases the way Jocelyn Janon masterfully captures living moments of the world of transformation that Jahra embodies.
