“Pabalat” by Salvador J. Ching on view at Art Lounge Manila: Podium

PABALAT is Salvador J. Ching’s 16 th solo exhibition at Art Lounge Manila. Translated, it may pertain to the wrapper, particularly of gifts. But it may also mean the cover of books, or the ornate cutout wrappers of local Bulacan pastillas de leche, or the dying folk craft of making them. As such, the title opens up the exhibition to all manner of associations connected with wrapping.
