Ittah Yoda is formed by Kai Yoda (Japan/Sweden) and Virgile Ittah (France), who live between Berlin, Paris and Tokyo.
Coming from diverse backgrounds, they have developed their artistic identity as a duo through mixing traditional processes with digital technology, a vector of cross-cultural creative collaborations. This collaboration gives rise to real and virtual forms that attempt to connect with an archaic heritage of humanity and a collective unconscious present in the psyche of an individual.

The duo Ittah Yoda highlights the performative dimension of their installation through the active participation of the public. Thus attempts to create a new reality using a rhizomic network of connections between the work and the viewer, linking virtual and physical realities, at the origin of new landscapes and the world to come.
