    3 Plays / / 0 Comments

    Gary-Ross Pastrana’s art has been one of the most persistent in terms of combining concepts with objects. His conceptual pieces, although loaded with poetic intensity, remain unobtrusively subtle and even almost quaint in its appearance. Coiled or folded photographs, his woven tales from found pictures in the internet, the sawed off parts of a boat shipped to another gallery, his shirt tied into a pole to commensurate a flag, these are the slightest of turns Gary-Ross has his objects make to create a new text within. Born in 1977 in Manila, he received his Bachelor’s degree in Painting from the University of the Philippines and was handed with the Dominador Castaneda Award for Best Thesis, and was granted with residency programs in Japan and Bangkok. Gary-Ross Pastrana, received the CCP Thirteen Artists Award in 2006, He has shown at the Singapore Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of the Philippines, and the Jorge B. Vargas Museum. He was the country’s representative for the New Museum in New York’s 2012 Triennial ‘The Ungovernables.’ He was part of the Aichi Triennale in 2010 and the Busan Biennale in 2008. He is one of the co-founders of Future Prospects Art Space in Cubao, Philippines and has regularly curated for shows both here and abroad.

      • Silverlens Portraits- Gabriel Barredo

        If the sleep of reason breeds monsters, then what would its total death produce in its wake? In the latest work of Gabriel Barredo, an installation collectively titled Opera, instead of offering comforting sermons, he invites us to view the body itself, asking us to confront the mortality of the corpse, to contemplate upon its passing and empathize if not make sense of its beauty. The processes of decay and its transformative power are presented with a forensic pathologist’s obsession to detail and an evangelical’s imagination for the fantastic that one can almost smell the scent of formaldehyde as much as the burning of candles. But as much as Barredo has set up a place for mourning, he has also given us an altar for rebirth. He allows the light in to suffuse the environs he has created with an air of transcendence. One can glean through the tableaux of surgical instruments, exposed organs, and faces contorted at the height of their screams the palpable presence of the divine and the tranquility of release it bestows. Though there is no overt religious imagery and in its place only the implements of modern medicine on display, the secular space is one of communion. Amidst the slaughter and carnage, we are in the presence of the faithful departed. And even if there is evidence of the grotesque and macabre, it is there to remind us of the horrors that we leave behind. After all, the dead do not heed nor need our calls for meaning but rather hear them as the chatter and howls of animals. For this exhibition, the artist collaborated with Malek Lopez for the music and Jason Tan for the video. All music and video was produced by Erwin Romulo.

                from Aldine Reinink / Added

                The Kenyan artist Miriam Syowia Kyambi performs her work 'Fracture (i)' at the opening of the exhibition Body Talk at WIELS, center for contemporary art in Brussels. The performance discusses the question of how people can pile up the pieces and continue their lives after all the horrors they have been through. What will happen to humanity if people cannot process those abhorrent experiences or mourn the beloved they have lost? People living in the middle of violence and fear need an opportunity to be themselves. They need a permission to feel, mourn, and carry on. The desire for justice is universal. The original duration of the performance is 2 hours. Credits Camera, editing: Aldine Reinink Sound: Thomas Van Baelen Music: Peter Bille Larsen - Piano Sonata No. 8
