CHIMÈRES : VISIONS OF SOUTH EAST ASIA
Date: 20.10. - 23.10.16
The route of Chimeres is essentially revolved around the artwork of Jose Santos III whose Manila cobblestones represent a road that leads to nowhere and the need to be guided towards the unknown. The Philippine artist Rodel Tapaya, offers a large canvas which propels us into founding sacred myths and Jigger Cruz whose paintings evoke a primitive memory. Manuel Ocampo revisits two large paintings of still life, while Marina Cruz erases the boundaries between photography and painting. The works of iconic Indonesian Eko Nugroho develop original and humorous visual imageries of the human figure through three beautiful embroidery’s. Lastly, the sculptured wall pieces of Entang Wiharso which were inspired by Indoniseian base – reliefs.
Hoping that these Chimères are beautiful discoveries.
