Artist on a Mission, Kristine Lim, opens her Art Installation at Baluartillo de San Francisco Javier, Fort Santiago, Intramuros Manila on Monday, 28 February 2022. The Art Installation was entitled “Portraits of Christ”.
“Portraits of Christ” taps on the controversy in history and theology that no one truly knows the real face of Jesus. The face that we recognize to be our Lord’s is, in fact, far from what He could have looked like. The different interpretations of the face of Christ have been dependent on the culture, taste, and era of the artist that envisioned and forged it. It has also heavily relied on the income that the churches can get based on the responses to the religious visuals that people were presented with.” Lim wrote in her artist’s statement.
The installation started with a dedication ceremony by Pastor Monique Lopez – Ong (Head Pastor of Revelation City Church and Host of ABS-CBN’s Real Talk). Present with Kristine Lim to formally open the said exhibit are Atty. Guiller B. Asido (Administrator, Intramuros Administration), Mayor Victoria Lao Lim of Gasan Marinduque, Engr. Dimas S. Soguilon (Former USEC of DPWH), Susanne DS Tiausas (Managing Director of Art Lounge Manila), and Anjila Lim (Kristine’s Singaporean Partner and Friend who’s currently the Managing Director of AOR Global). Portriats of Christ was curated by Ian Belleza and Presented by the Department of Tourism, It’s More Fun In the Philippines, Intramuros Administration and Art Lounge Manila.
