A Discourse on Bad Taste and Guilty Pleasures

Argie Bandoy


Artist Argie Bandoy opens a new window in his new collection “A discourse on bad taste and
guilty pleasures”. He creates a perspective wherein the image and signification are far from each other. He positions them where one can never meet the other – where recall and memory cannot in any way act as bridge to bring them closer, together.

The exhibit runs from 5 March to 25 March 2010 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 10A, La Fuerza
Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.

A Discourse on Bad Taste and Guilty Pleasures

Argie Bandoy


Argie Bandoy mocks “image-reading” as he unveils his new set of paintings and collages he
deems to be independent of ideas in his show “A discourse on bad taste and guilty pleasures”. He
describes the images from this set as mere color territories, penmanship and style as they endeavor to exemplify style rather than the signification.

The exhibit runs from 5 March to 25 March 2010 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 10A, La Fuerza
Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.
