Super late post, but here are photos from my super fun back-to-back show False Faces with my home girl Pam Celeridad! Held at Big Bad Wolf, Burgos Circle, BGC (Taguig) and managed by One Manila Gallery last May 22 - June 22, 2014, False Faces: A Conversation Between Art and Music collaborated with John Pope, Imelda, Dearest, Rez Toledo, CRWN, and Similarobjects who created musical interpretations of the pieces.
Pam’s take on False Faces is derived from the cultural and historical aspect of masks. “I focused on the essential characteristic of masks that span most cultures: hiding (and, at the same time, revealing) personalities and moods, or taking on the guise of whatever/whoever the mask is in direct association with — to be someone you are not or to be able to do things you wouldn’t/couldn’t normally do.”
I, on the other hand, envisioned the theme False Faces in two congruous ways. In the act of breathing, masks are conduits (instead of obstructions) between the internal self and the external world. Just as well, art as mask can reveal the primal self as an internal terrain.
