Patricia Perez Eustaquio (b. 1977) is based in Manila, where she is considered one of the leading Filipino artists of her generation. Notions of craft and design are central to her practice, and she makes use of a wide variety of materials such as fabric, wood, metal, rattan, glass and resin to explore their expressive possibilities and their role in cultural production. Her work explores the consumption, agency and biographies of objects. Her recent inquiries include the migrations and transformations in the status and identity of objects, as a result of trade and conflict.
Eustaquio has been featured in museums and galleries internationally, including the Singapore Art Museum (2004, 2009, 2012), the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Philippines (2011, 2015), the Jorge B. Vargas Museum, Philippines (2004, 2013), and the ongoing long-term exhibition The Philippine Connection: To Scale the Past and the Possible at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, curated by Patrick Flores. In 2016, she participated in the Singapore Biennale An Atlas of Mirrors, and presented That Mountain is Coming, a site-specific installation commissioned by Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France. She was awarded the Thirteen Artists Award from the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Ateneo Art Award in 2009 and has participated in international residencies including Stichting id11, Delft, Netherlands (2009); Art Omi Residency in Ghent, New York (2010); and Gasworks, London, UK (2018).
