Marion Laval-Jeantet et Benoit Mangin

Travels in Iboga is the manifold account of Marion Lavel-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin’s initiation into “Bwiti.’ “Bwiti” is one of those rare shamanic communities that, with the rainforest at risk of extinction, have had to accept the presence of foreigners. The work of Art Orienté objet explores human consciousness in relation to the manipulation of the living: the intention was to examine the systems of thought belonging to a world that Western society treats as a minority. In offering an alternative perspective of understanding the world, this experience went well beyond the militant perspective in which it was instigated and transformed itself that of the artist.
