To kick off 10 Days of Art and launch ArtFairPH/ Film, a special outdoor cinema will take place on February 14 and 15 at Ayala Triangle Gardens.

Curated by film composer Erwin Romulo, film critic Philbert Dy, and film archivist and historian Teddy Co, audiences will be able enjoy some of the best Filipino romantic movies of the last years, projected on the ceiling of the fountain area of Ayala Tower One.

Join us on Valentine’s Day and catch a special presentation of That Thing Called Tadhana.

The Unconfined Cinema provides a novel setting for experiencing Philippine films, and explores the possibilities of engagement outside of the typical venues that serve as gatekeepers to our cinema.

TRANSCENDANCE

How is love present in your body? How loving and soft are you when someone’s eyes says i love you? When someone breathes i love you? When someone stands i love you?

Do you shake close and shiver? Do you ease into it brave, calm and welcoming? Love is not just a mental backflip or a heart’s foolish judgement, it is an EMBODIED PRACTICE, it is a state held by the body—to Love, and it is always available.

Daloy Movement is an intuitive experience of movement, visualization, and somatic invitations to the only thing we’ve got going for us. Love as the sensoral affair with air, water, earth and fire of Love in everything and everlasting 💖. Because your body loves you too.

Not Visual Noise

Until March 29

Not Visual Noise

Not Visual Noise is a seminal photography exhibition that features more than 30 artists living in the Philippines and in the Filipino diaspora. It aims to showcase a diverse range of artists engaged in photography-based art practices whose works broadly represent what is happening in the fields of photography today — from photojournalism, long-form documentary photography to conceptual and installation photography, and web/social media-based projects. The exhibition examines the tension between high/low culture and high/low art photography in a media-saturated world in the hopes of drawing in wider and newer audiences. Not Visual Noise is curated by artist, writer, cultural organizer and educator, Angel Velasco Shaw.

ALLEGORIES AND REALITIES Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi: In Retrospect

ALLEGORIES AND REALITIES Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi: In Retrospect

22 February to 24 May 2020

Literature and art history strongly influence the works of Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi. Earning two degrees in Fine Arts and English from the University of the Philippines in Diliman, her approach to image making emanates from her deep understanding of the literary and visual arts. Close friend and fellow artist Nonon Padilla once noted that “the world of the divine is very much present in” Gelvezon-Tequi’s works. She has been highly acclaimed for her use of allegory to express and articulate statements on social ills and current struggles. Culled from medieval manuscript illustrations and biblical texts, her series of prints in the mid-1980s were filled with images of the sacred juxtaposed alongside the ordinary and everyday. Yet her works are also heavily grounded on the real and personal — family life and losses, greed and corruption, the turbulent political climate, or simply a row of trees, a lush garden or a still life. Referring to Gelvezon-Tequi’s prints and paintings, Leonidas Benesa notes a strong sense of “nostalgia for the past… but the idiom is pop, even folk” in her works. Aside from appropriating medieval texts, she also explored silk painting (an old Asian practice) with aniline pigments and adopted the format of the anting-anting for a series of prints. Religious personages are rendered with as ordinary folks — familiar and with warmth. Her more recent painted works assume similar qualities — composed in a hierarchical scheme, figures float in minimalist almost blank backgrounds as in medieval illuminations and frescos. Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi maintains a consistent presence in the local art scene. She exerts that although based in France, “I don’t address myself to the French, but to Filipinos.” Hers is a voice empathic of the conditions of the marginalized and critical of the foibles of the dominant.

The Horizon of Expectations Samantha Feleo

Until March 22

The exhibition is primarily composed of a series of hybrid sculptures made out of fired stoneware and artificially grown crystals. The works are a reflection of the artist’s phenomenological experience of time and space and the representation of an expansive and imaginative universe through the creation of dynamic and ever-changing work. Writer Stephanie Frondoso expounds, “Feleo’s decision to work with crystals as a medium to explore the sublime is based on her observation that their sparkling beauty inspires awe but their hostile shapes also trigger fear. Each crystal is a hybrid piece: first a tiny ceramic sculpture is fired in a kiln and then prepared as substrata in crystalline-forming baths. Time and care are needed to produce well-structured crystals, whose growth is affected by conditions such as air temperature and amount of space. The resulting crystal formations are partly controlled and partly imaginative, and are not strictly biologically-derived. The core, spherical in shape, is the symbol of life. Its evolution to sputnik form manifests the potential of stored energy.”
