Pittsburgh International Airport, Landside Terminal

Pittsburgh International Airport commissioned Mikael Owunna to exhibit work in the landside terminal (May 3, 2021 - Sept 24, 2021). 

This piece is titled "Be Chukwu (Divine Realm of the Creator)." According to the Igbo wisdom tradition, our Chi (or Highest Self) resides in the Primordial Androgynous Blackness of Be Chukwu, the Divine Realm of the Creator. Dreaming in perfect harmony with the Creator, our Chi's "super-deep-sleep" gives rise to temporal experience as we know it.  Our lives are these dreams, and when we die, our Chi awakes again in Be Chukwu.
