“As painters use brushes, paint and canvas, Mahangoe uses light and projection as the bearers of his message in order to share his vision of relativity in perception of light, space and time.”
At the moment Mahangoe is working on a series of installations in which spiritually rich places of this world play a leading role. In these new works he will show the energy of these unique locations.
In the year 2017, Mahangoe has performed several meditation sessions at various magical places on Earth, for instance at islands built on crystals and where waterfalls meet jungle and sea. From the jungle of Thailand to the caves of Menorca and the magnificent rock island Es Vedra on Ibiza. There, through the prisms in waterfalls and healing light rays, Mahangoe has experienced Prana directly flowing from nature and as this merged with the flow of his breath, a path of inner journey was created. Mahangoe grew up in a family of Hindu priests and thus the Buddhist and Hindu philosophies of life are intertwined in his work. Within the Hindu and Buddhist dharma (path / way of life), Prana represents all cosmic energy, permeating the Universe and life on all levels. According to Gautama Buddha, there is no individual identity and there is only Prana. Everything is a manifestation of Prana and Prana is the connection between everything.
