We were walking around and stumbled upon this.

The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents…

The use of craft in contemporary art means a dedication to materials and processes, though not entirely as a path to perfection and polish. On the contrary, the craft approach to art production shuns aesthetic perfection. Art that comes out of craftwork is a celebration of individuality amidst the spirit of globalism. It provides a concreteness and tactility that cyberspace can only offer virtually. It is in contrast to certain tendencies in globalism that promote a sense of cultural uniformity.

In their exhibit, artists Steph Palallos, Carmel Lim-Torres, and Josephine Turalba create diverse art highlighting the Handmade. They express personal experience rather than give voice to a collective social message. Consider Turalba’s leatherwork as a means to re-imagine landscapes from memory, or Palallos’ sewing fabric to construct garments that expose the ailing body, or Lim-Torres’ installation composed of paper, ceramics and wood to express hope amidst ecological peril. HANDMADE is curated by Leo Abaya.
