Our class’ group show had been mounted at the Bulwagan ng Dangal within UP Diliman since May 9 and is set to come down in a couple of days. What follows are some images of all the exhibited works and a few notes on them as well. Enjoy!
Upon entry we spot the work of Ed Arcilla – “Blah Blah Blah Belat” which alludes to the multiple meanings and universality of the act of sticking one’s tongue out:
It is followed by Sam Feleo’s “The Sex Life of Flowers” where a number of sculptural collages exploring natural expressions of desire within each:
On the opposite wall we find Ara Valiente’s “No Filter” – a collection of 60 transfigured images exploring the present generation’s compulsion to choose what to display and what is behind that choice:
Centered between the walls beyond the column lies “The Vexing Grid” – it is an exploration into the beginning/ideation of an act, without specificity… this one is by me BTW:
Adjacent to which is Chico Dellosa’s “Byahe” – capturing the essence of the ephemeral journey within a bus ride thru a painted collage triptych:
The show culminates within Ruston Banal’s “Kompasyun” – another journey, this time of the magdarame, through the elements present at the time of their spiritual cleansing:
We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who visited and even more so to those that stayed during the artist talk. A special shoutout to Ma’am Josephine Turalba for the guidance and consistent presence pushing every one of her six students for the course.
