Mise en (Matched) Scene

Alwin Reamillo

June 5 - June 28, 2014

Object Mise en (matched) scene is an ensemble of reworked and recent mixed media pieces, comprising of found and previously used objects: matched, reconfigured and re-animated within a box format, but in a way that exceeds the limits of the box. The format and layout reminds one of an apothecary of herbs and anting-antings or amulets which in traditional Filipino worldview function as aids to rituals performed by the albularyo, the Filipino healer. Aimed at smoothing blocked energy flows (bara), aligning mis-aligned energy channels (pilay), balancing imbalances in musculature (pasma), flushing out toxins and expelling wind and cold (hilo, hangin, lamig), the albularyo mobilizes a range of methods – from bulong (whispers), to “hilot” (“massage”), to incantations (dasal), to prescribing herbs.

Twilight of the Idols

Edric Go

June 5 - June 28, 2014

Comically derived from Friedrich Nietzsche's Twilight of the Idols, Edric Go presents a series of juxtaposed portraits that actually represents the collective facets of his personality and well, his almost geeky love for old world icons. This is actually humorous, because, Twilight of the Idols,or Götzen-Dämmerung in German as Nietzsche has created it, is a pun on Richard Wagner's opera Götterdämmerung, or 'Twilight of the Gods'. This turns out to be dreadfully ironic because Götze is the german word for "idol" or "false god". Go adds it up by somehow twisting the meaning of idolatry itself into the image of fallen Philippine Cinema icons that further represents the other strands of his intricately-spun web of personas.
