ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/show en-us 40 Nona Garcia - Silverlens Manila - August 27th - September 17th <div class="detailsMid"> <p style="text-align: justify;">This September, Nona Garcia will be the final artist to show in Silverlens&rsquo; first Pasong Tamo Extension gallery, before the gallery moves down the street to its new building in Lapanday&nbsp;Centre. In the ten years since Silverlens started the warehouse gallery model, only three artists have successfully used all the spaces for a single show&mdash;Arturo Luz, Leslie de Chavez, and Gabriel Barredo. Garcia ends this list with <em>Fall Leaves After Leaves Fall</em>. Last seen in Silverlens Manila as part of the group show <em>The&nbsp;Midnight&nbsp;Marriage</em> (2013) with Patricia Perez Eustaquio and Maria Taniguchi, Garcia takes over all the spaces.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The artist moved to Baguio City three years ago, and this show marks that move and the intangible milestones since, for both the artist and Silverlens. Garcia uses the elements&mdash;water, air, fire, and earth&mdash;as markers for these milestones.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Garcia will be showing all paintings. Water and air stand face to face in one of the galleries: two murals face-to-face, one sea (<em>Before The Sea</em>, 2012) and the other, sky (<em>Before the Sky</em>, 2016). Not the first time that either has been shown, but the first time they are shown together, in the way the artist originally intended. As earth, there is an 8x10-foot painting of a wall in Ifugao that doubles barely visible as a cantilevered stairway, a poetic nod to getting somewhere without realizing it. As fire, she presents abstract paintings of the remains of a recent fire that destroyed the Silverlens storage facility containing 217 pieces of art. Signaling the transformation post-destruction, pointing to the proverbial phoenix.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For both Nona and Silverlens, this is a sentimental show that marks the end of something, and points to the beginning of another.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Fall Leaves After Leaves Fall </em>will be on view from August 27 to September 17 at Silverlens, 2/F YMC Bldg. 2, 2320 Don Chino Roces Ave. Extension, Makati City. For inquiries, contact info@silverlensgalleries.com or (02) 816 0044.<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Artist</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Nona Garcia</strong> (b. 1978, Manila) received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting at the University of the Philippines.

We hope viewers will be able to interact with the works and amongst each other under such a dynamic circumstance.<br /><br />Artistic creation is a process of materializing one&rsquo;s imagination and creativity. In some way, imagination invokes inspiration through some medium, which can be anything at all: a mosquito, a woman&rsquo;s breath, light and shadow, a beautiful moment&hellip;Following the imagination, one&rsquo;s creativity will go even further, to decode the inspiration into a brand new self-expression. This process taps into the organic performance, &ldquo;Creativity is the strongest example of the dynamic nature of intelligence, and it can call on all areas of our minds and being.&rdquo;①<br /><br />This exhibition puts particular emphasis on New Media Art, or so-called Time-Based Art. This kind of art works uses the passage of and the manipulation of time as the essential element, and often includes movement and sound, to engage viewers involved in the final part of the creative process at the point of presentation. For artists, the idea of reactivity and interactivity is also considered as inherent to art works; viewers take great role enhancing the concept of art. In other words, it is the dynamic time, viewers&rsquo; interaction and synchronic consciousness that make individual perceptual expression eventually form a vivid artistic filed.<br /><br />①&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Quoted from &ldquo;The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything&rdquo;, by Ken Robinson, Lou Aronica</p> Sun, 28 Aug 2016 17:46:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Birdhead - ShanghART Singapore - July 22nd - January 21st, 2017 <p style="text-align: justify;">ShanghART artist collective BIRDHEAD (SONG Tao and JI Weiyu), started their six-month Southeast Asia Residency program from July 2016. They scheduled to travel around Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and other places, and they will come to Singapore to exhibit their art works created during the journey. Moreover, selecting Singapore as the last and most important stop in Southeast Asia, BIRDHEAD will conduct artists talk with Singaporean artists, which will definitely deepen bilateral exchanges in the field of arts, as well as culture and mutual understanding.<br /><br />BIRDHEAD&rsquo;s early works consist of photographic images of everyday life in their hometown of Shanghai. From 2011, they expanded the scoop of shooting to a broader prospective. Each action of gazing and shooting cuts out a space and a time, which also becomes a self-reflection, and it is to say the thousands of photos are thousands times of self-reflection. This action seems to be an exploration of the outside world; however, it is in fact a study of our heart and a constant introspection.<br /><br />In their opinion, shooting is only a means of expressing emotion, and it is both visual content and various materials that form into BIRDHEAD Language. Through constant photo shooting, selecting and editing photos to create connection and rhythm, through studying the traditional and current techniques, fabricating and mounting photos, to eventually carry and express our emotions in the time we live in.<br /><br />For BIRDHEAD, Southeast Asia trips may be regarded as an extension and reflection to a greater level. In an &ldquo;otherness" perspective, artists observe and record their own traces to explore various textures of life. They are tapping into proposition of "self" from far and beyond. Chiang Mai, Ho Chi Minh, Bagan, Phu Quoc Island&hellip;all places they travelled contributes an ongoing juxtaposition of traditional and modern, regional and individual influences, foreign "otherness" and native consciousness. Through shooting in Southeast Asia, their world is being constructed into multiple layers, among which they find a better way to connect with the whole world more directly and more deeply.<br /><br />Artist Introduction<br />BIRDHEAD (est. 2004), is an artist collective - JI Weiyu (1980) and SONG Tao (1979), were both born in Shanghai, where they also reside and work today.

She sculpts in plaster, a material traditionally reserved for studies for bronze works. Her subjects are often humorous and imaginative, rather than mythological or memorial.&nbsp;Together these sculptures show the artists' familiarity with anatomy, gesture and posture in works spanning the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries. Marrinon's contemporary figures converse with earlier works by Edgar Degas, Alfred Gilbert and Daphne Mayo while bringing a playful and speculative response to the genre of figurative sculpture.</p> </div> Sun, 28 Aug 2016 17:24:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art - May 7th - October 9th <p style="text-align: justify;">A selection of paintings, video works and sculpture from the contemporary Asian collection is on display, including works by Chatchai Puipia, Pinaree Sanpitak and Charwei Tsai, as well as Yuan Goang-Ming's three-channel video installation <em>Disappearing Landscape &ndash; Passing II</em> 2011.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Disappearing Landscape &ndash; Passing II</em>&nbsp;is three-channel HD video installation by Taiwanese artist Yuan Goang-Ming. Yuan often draws on personal experience in creating his works, and this powerful installation reflects on the relationships and links between his own past, present and future.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This work was created at a time of great emotion in Yuan's life, as his father passed away four months after his daughter was born. A meditation on time and memory, the film shows Yuan's home and the surrounding landscape through continuous linear sequences, using the movement of the camera and shifting film speeds to evoke acts of seeing, feeling and remembering. The work builds on the contrast between the warmth of his family life &ndash; including the reconstruction of his late father's study, his own apartment and the camphor tree in his garden &ndash; with unsettling scenes of the sea, speeding roads and the debris accumulated in abandoned neighbouring houses.</p> Sun, 28 Aug 2016 17:22:21 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
