Sangosanya's works can themselves be seen as metaphysical as well as "physical" (both visual and tactile) "guides" to alignment. Aware that we are still formatted by our condition of gender, age or culture, he understands that only art can allow him to transcend himself. For him, a young, black, mixed-race man, bearer of a double culture and conveying a pejorative image of African culture and identity, the important thing is to question this mixed identity by understanding the origin but also by constructing a new language to provide unprecedented access.
