HOW CAN I COME BACK WHEN I NEVER LEFT?
19 September- 12 October 2013
Ringo Bunoan’s solo exhibition “How can I come back when I never left?” presents philosophies of time and timelessness through installation and photography in both the Main and Upstairs galleries of Manila Contemporary. Employing strategies of silence, she creates a meditative experience through the relationships between objects and space, absence and presence, meaning and ambiguity.
In the center of the Main Gallery, a reconstructed boat, whose broken parts were once used in an installation by the late Roberto Chabet, anchors the show. Lined on its walls are black and white photographs of road islands from the artist’s city of residence. In the Upstairs Gallery, on the otherhand, a floor-to-ceiling column of books is surrounded by a collection of mounted pages with the words “The End.”
Purposefully avoiding the limits of explanation, whether personal or conceptual, Bunoan works with ideas that go beyond language. As such sensory experiences trigger the intellectual but ultimately aim to transcend definition or narrative.
