Change is a ubiquitous feature of the natural world, in one way or another we will inevitably find ourselves in some state of flux. These diverse perspectives on change yield insights on how we may respond to it, how we may find balance its midst and find enrichment in transformation.
Lena Cobangbang, Mariano Ching, Gale Encarnacion, Jed Escueta, IC Jaucian, Kitty Kaburo, Jo Santos and Yasmin Sison survey various states within the spectrum of change—from the gradual and unexpected, to the volatile and winding states of transfiguration. The audience will also discover how disrepair and decay can offer possibilities for renewal and reincarnation—through depictions of ephemera, and through altered and manipulated photographs. In other works, conventions of beauty are broken down and altered as a gesture of resistance towards the projection of superficial aesthetics.
