1335MABINI is proud to present Manny Montelibano’s solo exhibition titled "Boxed Out" from November 29 to December 23, 2017. For this exhibition, Montelibano shows seven new individual works, and taken together these works form an installation symbolizing an unstable archipelago. Each of the works consists of videos played on curved screens, symbolizing (geopolitical) waves, and punching bags, symbolizing both violence and fear. The videos are a continuation from his work "A Dashed State," presented in the 56th Venice Biennale at the Philippine Pavilion titled Tie a String around the World, curated by Dr. Patrick Flores in 2015. Since then, the world has changed dramatically with newly elected volatile presidents at home and abroad making border disputes even more unpredictable, putting lives and livelihoods of sailors and seamen at immediate risk.
The exhibition will open together with an Artist Talk on Wednesday, November 29, 6pm-9pm at 1335MABINI, C1B Karrivin Plaza, 2316 Don Chino Roces Ave. Extn. Makati City, Philippines
