AsianArt:Future, Hong Kong and 1335MABINI is pleased to present an exhibition juxtaposing Philippine 20th century abstract art and Cordillera (Ifugao) traditional art, with a view to allow you to gain your own experience. It is not about searching for traces of Cordillera art in the abstract art. It is about presenting the aesthetic vocabulary, using the same principles, in different times, from a quite different cultural background. Click here to read the full introductory text.
Juxta:Position The Aesthetics of Reduction opens on 16th of February 2019, 4pm at 1335MABINI Karrivin Plaza, Chino Roces Ave. Extension, Makati City and will run until the 2nd of March 2019.
Alliance Française de Manille, in partnership with Centre Intermondes, and 1335 Mabini Gallery, present Afterworld Obliteration, a solo art exhibition by Philippine Artist Residency Program 2017 winner, Dexter Sy.
Over the years, Dexter has shaped his own style, combining Persian rugs, painting and ink and pen drawings. In France, he created works evoking the violence and terrorism that can hit both France and the Philippines. There are cut-outs in the form of robots representing evil, robots being perceived in Asia as destructive beings. The drawn parts represent hell and the victims of violence and terrorism intertwined with graphics from the tradition of Indigenous Filipino groups. The use of the Persian rug echoes the significant presence of the Muslim community in the Philippines (more than 20% of the population). The works also make use of Christian symbolism; Christianity is the majority religion in the Philippines. The exhibition runs until February 23, 2019.
