Lena Cobangbang and Mike Crisostomo are known for their collaborative project called The Weather Bureau where they manufacture visions of utopia and the inherent fascism of framed representations of such.
Spamland is their individual exploration on the consumption of processed imagery and ideations of land/landscape and its supposed attendant transcendence, and the chasm of appetite for such as they do away with specifics with their paintings, photographs and videos.
It is rather a persistence in such dreaming that makes such practice a survivalist act from an entrapping bureaucracy of marketable aesthetics.
Spamland will be opening this Tuesday November 20, 2012 and will be on view until December 8, 2012.
