STRIP 2013 brings together the works of three Filipina photographers Corinne de San Jose, Wawi Navarroza, and Rachel Rillo to Silverlens Gillman Barracks from 05-28 April 2013.
The exhibition highlights the common persuasion among their works in the re-thinking of photography and still life, as well as an affirming testament to contemporary photography’s ever-embracing fascination with sculpture, installation, and performance for the camera. In a showcase of hiding objects in plain sight, we are offered personal proposals for meaning as we are made to rediscover the innate appearances of things by their absence, by bare bones and jarring simplicity, by how they are lifted to the light and how illuminance carves them.
The three photographers on show take us back to the photographer and the studio, in situ. They are looking at objects and presenting it on offer for the viewer to look at in its basic forms, and yet abstracted to a degree that the familiar is reintroduced.
