Geopoemas is Kristoffer Ardeña's first solo exhibition at 1335MABINI. The show focuses on Ardeña's ongoing experiments in painting in relation to the notion of tropicality within the Philippine context, specifically, within the framework of the island of Negros as a point of departure. He explores the poetic potentials of the exotic by using banal surfaces, such as tarpaulin and fabric that are intrinsic to the material experience of the intimate spaces of everyday life. The exhibition will run until the 25th of May, 2018.

Kristoffer Ardeña (1976) lives between Negros island (Philippines) and Madrid (Spain). Ardeña works with various formats ranging from ready-mades, photography, installation, sculpture, video, painting, performance and others. He also curates through the platform Moving Images Lab Filipinas and he is the co-founder of Photoma (photoma.info), the latter organized a group show at MABINI Projects, 6 April – 5 May, 2018).

He received various awards and scholarships. He has done solo projects at Museo Carrillo Gil in Mexico, Selasar Sunaryo Art Space, Ruang MES56 and Cemeti Art House (Indonesia), Vargas Museum and the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila (Philippines), Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo Museum (Madrid), La Conservera Centro de Arte Contemporáneo (Murcia, Spain).
