Mervy Pueblo and Atsuko Yamagata, visual artists based in Manila, have met, created and exhibited their works at the recently concluded 7th international art festival called the Nakanojo Biennale in Japan last September 2019. This 14 November 2019, Thursday, 6pm, the Cultural
Center of the Philippines unveils their work from the biennale to bid visitor to look-in to the insights of the artists in this exhibition who address historical, contemporary and societal specters.
Working both individually during their artist in residency of the biennale, Pueblo and Yamagata have realized projects that respond to the physical and nonphysical realm. Pueblo’s installation is interjected with coded references, creating socially charged mysterious draperies that function as
a portrait of our contemporary reality. Yamagata playfully explores animist processes and presents a materialistic definitions of the immaterial just like how one’s journey is recorded by one’s own footprint. Transcendental offers an immersive experience that sets the space for an examination of one’s own values and of the indelible tracks that continues even after one’s presence is relinquished.
The exhibit Transcendental will have its opening reception on 14 November, 6pm, at the CCP’s Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby). The exhibition will run until 9 February 2020. Exhibit viewing hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 6pm. Hours are extended until 10pm on days with evening performances at the CCP Main Theater.
