Synthesis of Affinities

Synthesis of Affinities

Coming from different generations and working in various styles, this ensemble portrays different approaches in art and image-making.


Synthesis of Affinities looks into the linked affinities of an individual with the self and the world beyond. The Iranian philosopher Reza Negarestani writes in Cyclonopedia (2008) that “Each particle of dust carries with it a unique vision of matter, movement, collectivity, interaction, affect, differentiation, composition, and infinite darkness.” In essence, these particles insert themselves inside the multiplicities of oneself as we participate in forming relationships with ourselves and others. The exhibition will feature works by Emman Acasio, Renz Baluyot, Katrina Cuenca, Genavee Lazaro, Aileen Lanuza, Hae Ryun, Ramon Orlina, Nunzio Paci, Gabby Prado, Mark Santos, Vincent de Pio, Reybert Ramos, and Jomike Tejido. Coming from different generations and working in various styles and formats, Synthesis of Affinities arranges an ensemble where identities are portrayed using different approaches in art and image-making. The symbolic amalgamation of particles in the materials and objects that are found among the works in the presentations marks the individual’s longing for relationships and inclusions in the matters of the universe.
