The use of slogans, abbreviations and acronyms as empty signifiers, representations of knowledge (data visualized in infographics and maps) are signs of the writing, re-writing and writing off of memory, memory that serves to construct an ‘us’ (vs. a ‘them’, the barbarians on the other side of the border, a man-made border), a community (from an ethnic group to the nation). Even though myth-memory is man-made, it does have real consequences in everyday life. And a group of international artists are invited to contribute (ongoing) research projects dealing with the workings of power-knowledge relationships. The exhibition  Imagining Memory: Between Anaesthesia and Amnesia  opens on March 22nd and will run until April 21st at 1335MABINI Karrivin Plaza, Makati.

Kristoffer Ardeña: Geopoemas

April 28 – May 25, 2018

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. 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.

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, and performance. He also curates through the platform Moving Images Lab Filipinas and he is the co-founder of Photoma.

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).
