At the heels of his visual treatise on heroic immortality at Blanc Peninsula last year, Robert Besana takes his inquiry to another realm of mystique and intrigue at Blanc Compound with Mysteria Lucis, an installation project featuring his works in ink on wood.
The title of the exhibit recalls the Luminous Mysteries, the additional or ‘optional’ mysteries introduced by the late Pope John Paul II to the praying of the Holy Rosary in October 2002. The addendum Mysteria Lucis is argued even among Catholics whether to be observed or else dispensed with; and in Besana’s construct, parallels the ambiguities of faith and reason through the lens of the cautionary fable of the moth and the flame.
Robert Besana is an award-winning visual artist and Director of the School of Multimedia Arts, Asia Pacific College.
The exhibit opens at 6:00pm on September 28 and on view until October 15, 2012.
Blanc Compound is located at 359 Shaw Boulevard Interior, Mandaluyong City.
