Drawing an intersection between visual art and mechanical science, Dr. Giovanni Tapang, Associate Professor at the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines Diliman, will be giving a talk titled Making Things Move. It will explore how current technology enables everyone  to create physical objects that can sense the world and allow interactivity. Dr. Tapang and his team were instrumental in the creation of Martha Atienza’s exhibition Endless Hours at Sea on view at the Ateneo Art Gallery until September 30.  He will discuss available tools and techniques and relate them to the methods used in Atienza’s exhibit

The talk seeks to give students and enthusiasts an introduction to the various methods they can use to animate things, make them talk, and blink using special tools and techniques. Other rapid prototyping technologies that allow one to hold ideas and concepts in their hands such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC machines will also be discussed.

ArtSpeak: TESTIMONY OF WHAT REMAINS

An Artist Talk by Jason Dy, SJ

 

Last 3 July 2013, the Cultural Center of the Philippines unveiled Testimony of What Remains, the first solo exhibition of Jason Dy, SJ at the CCP. Dy has accomplished a significant body of works out of the intertwined tradition of prayer and memory. Testimony of What Remains follows his series of projects called In Loving Memory, expanding a conversation of various recollected memories of the dearly departed through community interactions centered on bottled memorabilia, envelopes of prayer requests, and actual remnants of cemetery markers and statuettes.

 

To form art from the contributions of religious culture and community and to experience it as communion has become the hallmark of not just Dy’s calling as both priest and artist. These interactions also serve to provide a more contemporary take on Catholic traditions and confirms the dynamic function of faith among the parishioners and pilgrims of Dy’s Sacred Heart Parish, an adoration shrine in Cebu City. These varied contributions become recycled meanings that he uses to clue in on what remains beyond what we fear and wish for.

 

Testimony of What Remains will run until 18 August 2013. CCP Gallery hours are from 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesdays to Sundays. For more information on the exhibition, call the Visual Arts & Museum Division of the CCP at (632) 8321125 local 1504 & 1505, or (632) 8323702, and email ccp.exhibits@gmail.com, or visit www.culturalcenter.gov.ph .

ArtSpeak with Kiri Dalena

Kiri Dalena presents text taken from social networks, public discussion boards and cellular phones from September26-28, 2009 when Typhoon “Ondoy” dumped a month’s worth of rain in a span of a few hours. With the city submerged and unprepared, stranded residents of Metro Manila turned to cyber space and cellular networks and generated a flood of status messages, tweets, and posts, the text shaped and convoluted by disaster in real time. Today, after a span of four years, the artist invites us to quietly regard and reread the unedited text.

ArtSpeak with Lizza May David

Berlin based Filipino-German artist, Lizza May David found interest in engaging with the permanent collectionof Ateneo Art Gallery and it’s focus on Filipino Modernity. David introspects on her own background of education abroad and rediscovers these works underthe backdrop of hierarchal classification models, translation, representational practices and reproductiontechniques touching sensitive notions like the concepts of “originality” and “copy”, the “periphery” and “central”.Beyond the practice of research-based art, David translates the language to her own familiarity through the process of painting. She finally traces back early Filipino painters who copied engravings with religious motifs, which came from Spain by the way through Mexico, mostly done by Dutch and Flemish engravers.

ArtSpeak with Claudia Del Fierro

Claudia Del Fierro’s work for her residency in Manila isresponding to the archive as a place of quiet, where facts are resting silently, and history organized at the Ateneo Library of Women’s writings, a safe place where documents are catalogued, classified and aranged alphabetically. Juxtaposed with this idea, Del Fierro also explores a more visceral archive wherein she collects image and sound within everydaysituations experiencing Manila’s daily public life.

ArtSpeak with Maria Cruz

Working in Berlin, Sydney and Manila, Filipino artist Maria Cruz is an advocate of a more speculative role for art wherein the unmonumental extend a dialog with the fluid intelligence of images, broken syllables, characters, and shapes.For this exhibition, Maria Cruz’s creates a new body of work inspired by Celso Ad Castillo’s cult classic sex film,Nympha produced in 1971. Cruz plays along with theimplied narrative of the film and her fond familiarity upon it’s release in theaters. Through her paintings, she explores notions of hysteria and sexuality, the preservation/or non-preservation of a narrative and the points of processes of cultural translation and meanings looked upon through the purposive use of abstraction.

ArtSpeak with Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen’s performance and installationpiece Gaia #2 is a continuation from a project which started in Denmark. Relating to familial and biological bonds integrated within her identity as Danish Filipina. Born in Manila and raised in Stevns Denmark,Rasmussen explores the idea of detachment from the two places, a process she intends to go through in order to find a “third place”. For her performance in Denmark, Rasmussen created a “nullification ritual” with her father and daughter. She will do the same in Manila, with her mother and daughter. She engages in a so-called, “Self-healing ritual nullification” in order to ground herself to her place of nationality and place of birth, either to detach herself from it, or to completely re-unite with it, therefore finding a third place. This piece is a performance, a ritual, a sculpture, consisting of volcanic rocks fromMt. Pinatubo.

Tuloy Po Kayo

Capping off the year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Ateneo Art Gallery (AAG), the first museum of modern and contemporary art in the Philippines, has the distinction of bringing back to the country - after a three decade long absence - arguably the most significant Filipino visual artist on the international stage, David Medalla. 

The London-based art vanguard, who is currently artist-in-residence at the AAG, will deliver a lecture titled "Tuloy Po Kayo," as part of the museum's long-running ArtSpeak series. It will be held at 4pm on Wednesday, 23 November 2011, Ateneo Art Gallery, Level 2 Rizal Library Special Collections Building (RLSC), Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. In honor of Medalla's homecoming, the AAG is likewise exhibiting its entire collection of the artist's works - the largest held by any public institution in the Asia-Pacific region.

"Tuloy Po Kayo" will reflect upon Medalla's transnational, multi-disciplinary practice, and will revolve around the different foreign personalities that have shaped Philippine culture through art, music, science, sport and philanthropy.  The lecture resonates with the theme of a show that the artist will be part of - "Migrations," a survey of 500 years of British art history, which will attempt to tell the story of how migrants shaped the country's art.  This landmark exhibition will be held at Tate Britain from 31 January - 12 August 2012 and will feature Medalla alongside old masters such as Hans Holbein and Anthony van Dyck, as well as pioneering modernist and contemporary works by the likes of Piet Mondrian and Jacob Epstein.

Admission to ArtSepak with David Medalla: "Tuloy Po Kayo" is free and open to the public. Advance bookings, however, are strongly recommended, as seats are limited. For inquiries, please contact Ian Jaucian or Thea Garing at 4266488 or email ijaucian@ateneo.edu / dgaring@ateneo.edu.

About the artist

David Cortez Medalla (b.1938) is a London-based Filipino visual artist, and a pioneer of kinetic art, earth art, performance art, participation art and conceptual art.  At the age of 12, he had already lectured at the University of the Philippines, and by 14 he was admitted to Columbia University in New York to study philosophy and Greek drama.  In the mid 1950s, he returned to the Philippines and met Fernando Zóbel, the artist, educator and philanthropist, who later on became one of his earliest patrons.   Medalla then moved to Europe, where he has based himself since while traversing the globe with his multi-disciplinary art practice. He has exhibited in numerous  international art exhibitions and festivals including Documenta 5, the 16th Biennale of Sydney, and is the director and founder of the London Biennale.  Medalla is represented in museum collections including the Ateneo Art Gallery, the FRAC - Pays de la Loire in France and Tate Britain in the UK. In May 2011, the artist unveiled one of his iconic bubble machines "Cloud Canyons No. 14" at New York's New Museum. Described as the first work of auto-creative art, it was selected by exhibitions director Massimiliano Gioni as an iconic modern work of art.

Doko kara kimashita ka? (Where are you from?)

Independent curator Clarissa Chikiamco spent 6 weeks in Japan, from 7 February – 20 March 2011, as the researcher in residence at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.  In this informal talk, Chikiamco will share about her experience—from research on video art in the FAAM collection to learning Japanese language and culture in her first ever visit to the country. The question, “Doko kara kimashita ka?” (“Where are you from?” or "Where do you come from?"), serves as a parallel to her experience—from the question she was often asked and the question she herself was asking in her research.

 

After this casual sharing, green tea and Japanese snacks will be served.

The Traces Left Behind by the Disappearance of Everything Else: Ephemeral Objects and Ephemeral Lives in Regional Australian Art

On the last day of the exhibition LEE AGUINALDO: IN RETROSPECT, The Ateneo Art Gallery in conjunction with the Ateneo de Manila Fine Arts Program present the first ArtSpeak session for the year 2011:

The Traces Left Behind by the Disappearance of Everything Else:

Ephemeral Objects and Ephemeral Lives in Regional Australian Art

To be delivered by Neil Fettling,  Campus Director and Coordinator/Senior lecturer in Visual Arts and Design, La Trobe University, Mildura. Australia on Saturday, 5 February 2011 at the Ateneo Art Gallery, 2nd Level Rizal Library Special Collections Building at 10am-12nn.

This ArtSpeak session will be the finale activity of the week-long KALINANGAN: ANG SINING NG PAGYABONG, FINE ARTS FESTIVAL 2011.

Admission is free.  For more information, please contact Exhibitions Coordinator, IC Jaucian at +6324266488 or ijaucian@ateneo.edu

 

ABSTRACT

these objects are the traces left behind by the disappearance of everything else’, a quote by Cultural critic, Jean Baudrillard, refers to the clamour of objects that fill our daily lives as  contrasted by the stillness and silence of a photograph.

Within this context, as an artist based in the vast semi-desert of North West Victoria in Australia, my work and research involves the history and sociology of Mallee dry- land farmers, and their determination to tame the land.

This is traced through the collection and re-interpretation of the ephemeral objects left behind on their farming properties. This work interfaces the abundant waste and bloated heritage of our post industrial materialism and how the cultural artefact has replaced nature as a signifier of meaning.

In exhuming the informal rubbish pits for abandoned secular relics, l collect discarded objects in mass, and then re-install them into large scale monuments of human aspiration of settlement.

These various objects are associated with loss and displacement evidenced in major exhibition installations: The Mallee a History, 2000 (214 rusty tin food processing cans installed on Perspex shelves on an earth coloured wall), White goods, 2009 (plastic and polystyrene containers), Relics, 2003-2010, (footwear),  and Clandestine: an ashscape installation responding to the loss and trauma from the devastating bushfires on Black Saturday, 2009/10 (200 burnt personal objects).

Like artist Doris Salcedo, and her transformation of domestic materials and objects that respond to recent Colombian political history, of violent disjuncture or political disappearance, my research is into the non events of history; the movement of human masses, through the impact of political processes and decision making, and the slow displacement events caused by environmental, sociological and climatic changes.

Intimate objects that have been touched and worn are memory fragments that have the capacity to outlive the existence of the subject. As Nancy Princenthal, in her essay, silence seen states, ‘utlilitarian objects in the service of active memory is simultaneous with their functional death’.

Everyday objects become outsiders when their conventional banality is transformed by the disappearance of their real or immanent form. This was the case when on 7th February, 2009, in what was to become the worst bushfire in living memory incinerated my family’s home and its contents. In the subtraction, the stripping of the object’s origin, its use or judgement of value and its functionality, a type of aura, an enigmacity or momento mori emerges from the absence.

Ultimately, these ephemeral objects represent ephemeral lives.
