Yavuz Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in Art Fair Philippines 2021, consisting of two curated exhibitions marking the Gallery’s continued commitment to bring together important contemporary art practices in the region.
The first, titled Invisible Threads, showcases works by an eclectic group of young artists from Australia and Southeast Asia on a digital platform. Its title takes cue from an East Asian belief pointing to an unseen thread that connects those who are destined to meet despite time, place, and circumstance. During these unprecedented times, Invisible Threads is a formidable yet welcoming opportunity to discover new connections and relationships that remain in our periphery. It introduces distinct approaches to image-making, foreshadowing the increasing engagements of art practices and narrowing geographic divides.
Featuring works by: Abdul Abdullah, Zico Albaiquni, Aida Azin, Johanna Helmuth, Radhinal Indra, Yeo Kaa, Tara Kasenda, Joanne Pang, Tom Polo, Wedhar Riyadi, Geremy Samala, Kien Situ, Olan Ventura
The second, titled Vestiges of Meaning, brings to the fore artists from the Philippines that explore the role of material culture in their artistic production and the ways in which the process of working and reacting to material, contributes to the shifting position of the medium. Held physically in a pop-up space in Makati, Manila, the exhibition explores artistic approaches to materiality and investigates the power of the medium to transform itself as a conduit of context. From paper to plastic, Vestiges of Meaning addresses the expanding notions of form and how it reshapes its participation in production as a median rather than an aggregate.
Featuring works by: Isabel & Alfredo Aquilizan, Jan Balquin, Mars Bugaoan, Ayka Go, Lou Lim, Tekla Tamoria
Address: Eurovilla Condominium 1, 142 Legazpi Street, Legazpi Village 1263, Makati
