CONTOURS OF LOSS (Lester Amacio, Crown Dolot, Michelle Hollanes Lua, Paul Eric Roca and Alab Pagarigan)ArtPipe Events Filed Under:
We all know how it is to practice for the inevitable good bye, that finality we all will have to deal with, eventually. But in the face of smaller farewells we encounter in our lives, we hold on to things that remind us, that stave the potential for oblivion for us, even in their frailty – letters we keep hidden, text messages we save and don’t delete, pictures we protect, clothes we look at often, and small objects we cherish for the memories they keep for us. This is the common thread that binds this exhibit-CONTOURS OF LOSS. It is not the losing that we pay tribute to in this exhibit, but the redeeming power of active memory and transformative imagination – where loss or the potential of loss is molded into precious vessels of hope and redemption.
"Contours of Loss" showcases works by Lester Amacio, Crown Dolot, Michelle Hollanes Lua, Paul Eric Roca and Alab Pagarigan. Opening will be on November 14, 7pm at VMeme Contemporary Art Gallery. The exhibit BARE by Franklin Caña Valencia will also be opening at the same time. Guests will be treated to a truly artful evening.
