Departing from each individual’s take on horror vacui or the fear of empty spaces, the five artists in this show converge to present their examination of how spaces are either filled or left idle. “Kalibunan” forays into the different ways that spaces are activated —either through the physical presence or the ability of the audience to conceive that an empty space ventures into its own undertaking.
In this exhibition, we witness how these artists respond to the different forms of horror vacui that surround them like social media and excessive information among other things.
Just like wading through thick shrubs, here, we find ourselves clearing the path, one step at a time.
Kalibunan will run from October 10 to November 3, 2019
