Tomorrow (or today, or last week, depending on when you're reading this), Saturday, June 7, 2008, is the opening of Sleeping White Elephants, Kidlat de Guia's first solo exhibit here in Manila (he had a solo exhibit in Baguio, and a group exhibit with his brothers Kawayan and Kabunyan at Silverlens before). So you gotta go!
It's happening at 3 PM, at GALLERY DUEMILLA, 210 Loring Street, Pasay City. (It's "near the corner of Taft and Edsa. If on Edsa coming from Makati heading towards Roxas Blvd, after crossing Taft Ave, turn right on the second street, PARK AVENUE (after LPG filling station). Then turn right on the first street, Loring Street -- you can't miss it on your right, number 210.")
"Sleeping White Elephants is Kidlat De Guia's photography exhibit showcasing Manila's unfinished high-rise buildings. The images of these concrete monoliths have been reproduced on duratrans and transformed into lightboxes. The cement frames encase concrete images in more concrete, creating a living sarcophagus for the prematurely dead. Video projections on the walls in between the images create an ongoing conversation between the "sleeping" giants and the environment they inhabit."
Seeya there! :D
