LINDSLEE: Paranoia of the Plutocrats

The rich becomes richer and the poor becomes poorer. Lindslee’s installation responds on the seeming government control by the wealthy, mighty and influential.

His work depicts the paranoia of the affluent and the powerful. They hire a bunch of body guards and security personnel to protect their collections - art, high end cars, mansions, gold and other material things. To a certain degree, this conveys a particular line of thought: that luxuries are more valuable than LIFE itself. It is unfortunate that people tend to overlook the essence of a meaningful existence due to the value placed on commodoties.

Lindslee depicts the ridiculous side of a “caught in the act” scenario; it connotes a certain denial of what has been blatantly seen by the eyewitness or felt by one’s conscience.

“I noticed that while I was working on the installation I've become conscious of the space as something you can only see from outside the window. You can't walk in and around it and look at it in different ways. There is a distance. And although I see the pieces as separate if I put myself in someone else's shoes and look at it from outside I'm going to see one picture.

I try to relate the things around me with how the space I'm using for the exhibition. I like to get a sense of history and mood and some other things and try to place pieces of those into what I think I need to do. I use something that belongs somewhere to try to tell a story or show something I might have imagined. Maybe. I hope my work becomes a good waste of time to someone who stops and have a look.”

Boundaries... delineations… territories… these are tangible and intangible demarcations of the extent by which ones security and comfort zones are defined. These may shift with the current tide, be displaced due to instability or even become ambiguous because of indetermination. Fara Manuel reacts to the various circumstances through which one’s sense of place or displacement transpired. More importantly, she envisions how these stages, changes and distinctions will eventually lead back home.
Fara Manuel-Nolasco explores the intersection between the humanities and geography. She works with mapping as a method of diurnal-style of recording human activity. Fara was part of the 98B COLLABoratory-Bamboo Curtain Studio exchange residency in Taipei,Taiwan in 2014. She is currently teaching in the Fine arts program of UP Baguio.

Ganggo is the energy coursing through each member of our group and our collaborative works. Ganggo is an entity that lives through six individuals who share a common practice of painting and feeling. Our physical meetings rotate between our studios, and happen when all of our feelings are the same. We maintain an open agenda, and insist on using pleasurable working methods. We feel the spaces we occupy, and make a document of time and energy.

We collaborate in the spirit of friendship, and harness the feeling of happiness through art-making. We have healthy discussions about our thoughts on art, and share with each other our life updates, as a way for us to gain a deep and personal understanding of our joints as a single body. The Ganggo Organ is chatroom where we meet and have non-linear discussions. It's like a crystal ball that the members speak to and see into. It is a deep well that connects to each member when we are not all together in one place and time, to ensure that the meeting of feelings goes on. Ganggo is a mystery that we do not want to deconstruct. The moisture it produces is enough to make us feel sexy. It's like the first cup of quaffee at 3am.

NIGHTSWEATING: July 19, 2015 3am

Nightsweating begins on the dead hours of the night; a time that cultivates Ganggo's inner gardening along the backdrop of an external jungle.

CIRCLE OF TRUST: August 05 2015, 8PM

An intimate exchange is an awareness of ones capacity to give and receive. Though misinterpretations and breaks are possible; through these occurrences transitions are enabled. Shards of new directions are perceived, the receivers are transformed and the exchange strengthens.

GANGGO ROSARY: August 29, 2015,  6pm

Conversations in a meeting: defining boundaries, stating positions on to which members stand, from where everyone will jump off together.
And while the exchanging of the minds, a devotion (not sacred at all). Ideas embedded into a singular line: ____________.

PORTALS: CHARLES AARON SALAZAR

Open for viewing March 7, 2015
Artist reception March 14, 2015 | Saturday | 5PM 

Charles Aaron Salazar’s works are photography-based and collages. He has a fascination with two-dimensional images which can be restructured, redefined and manipulated.

His daily commute involves a lot of walking, not to mention, a number of transfers from tricycles to jeepneys and buses. It is unfortunate that he does not know how to drive and like most urbanites, acquiring a vehicle is an unlikely possibility. As such, almost half of his day is spent in, on and along the streets of the city… where his photographs and inspirations are derived from.

Portals is a result of his frustration from wasting too much unnecessary hours on the road. He therefore surmised that a portal could truly be useful; where you enter as one thing, and come out as another.

This made him think about the horse-drawn carriages that used to roam the streets of Escolta as the main means of public transportation. He uses the image of a horse crossing the portal as a metaphorical take-off point to draw out carriages or make old streets come to life. In combination with his innate wit and humor, Salazar provides another gateway to escape, take or view.
