A conversation with Alyssa Alikpala on ceremonial deaths.
Host: Hima Batavia
Producer: Trisha Gregorio
Alyssa Alikpala is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and researcher, working across sound, sculpture, installation, and ephemeral forms. Her work explores the sensorial body and its relation to material and environment, focusing on the physical process both as a way of generating insight and as a meditative practice.
Through environmental interventions, her current body of work invites slowness and sensitivity. They respond intentionally to the time, place, and conditions with subtle disruption, making use of found and natural materials. The works have become a vessel for healing and acceptance, contemplated through their impermanence.
