Scene/Seen implies the ambivalence of creation: Does the gaze create the milieu or does the setting frame the vision? Billijin Carle Esguerra and Resty Flores propose refigurations of the realities of Filipino folk narratives through existing personal and cultural memories and imaginations. As a collection of ethnographic documentations of mindful swashes and strokes, Scene/Seen attempts to breathe a fresh understanding of the waxing and waning of our oral lores.
Scene/Seen is an artistic dialogue between artists Billijin Esguerra and Resty Flores. This exhibit is curated by Randel Urbano under the RELAY Program of CreatingSPACE Inc.
