Featuring more than 80 artists and groups from over 30 countries, APT9 challenges conventional definitions of contemporary art by asking us to consider its relationship to shifting social structures across the region.

Dominic Mangila at the Gwangju Biennale 2018 – Pavilion Project


“In my installation at Hothouse – the pavilion of the Philippine Contemporary Art Network at the 2018 Gwangju Biennale, I attempt to liquefy the autonomy of the the unique painterly swath and to further break down the pliable borders between television, abstract painting and sculpture.

In the exhibition, I use glass as an essential material that adjoins the spheres of the televisual with the painterly and the sculptural with the pictorial.”

‘Hothouse’ = The boundaries of natural and artificial, sensibility and space, expressed by Philippine and Gwangju artists

The Philippine Contemporary Art Network will show six Korean and Filipino artists including Mark Salvatus, Indy Paredes, Dominic Mangila, Renz Lee, Lee Kang Ha, Sehyun Lee, under the title, ‘Hothouse.’ The exhibition is planned by Patrick D. Flores, a former curator of the Philippine Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale and one of the curators for “Position Papers” in the 2008 Gwangju Biennale.

The word ‘hothouse’ refers to a structure which triggers exceptionally rapid growth of plant life out of their natural season. A greenhouse is the contact zone between the natural and artificial and an environment made of glass. The exhibition focuses on the situation which takes place at the intersection of the emotional element, ‘hot’ and space, ‘house’.

Alfredo And Isabel Aquilizan: Of Fragments and Impressions at the STPI Creative Gallery and Workshop


” ‘Of Fragments and Impressions’ is a ground-breaking exhibition staged by STPI and award-winning Brisbane-and Manila-based installation artist duo Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan in conjunction with STPI’s 15th anniversary. Impressive in scale and pivotal in its undertaking, the extensive oeuvres see the prolific artists breaking new frontiers by transforming fragments of their widely-acclaimed temporal installations into permanent material works for the very first time. From a sweeping installation of cardboard pulp and steel metal rods, to gritty shanty town houses constructed with compressed cardboard, to spectacular large-scale cyanotype collages of wings, the artists turned the STPI gallery into a stellar showcase which embodies their decades-long practice.”

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan at Bellas Artes Projects


High Noon at Cagayan Garden
Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan
Curated by Diana Campbell
Opening 7pm, August 15, 2017 at the Bellas Artes Outpost

“Cagayan Garden (2017) takes inspiration from Alfredo Aquilizan’s personal history growing up in Cagayan and his and Isabel’s artistic concerns with displacement, change, memory and community. During their residency in Bataan, Isabel, Alfredo, and their children collected posts of antique Filipino houses that had been relocated to Bataan as part of the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar’s collection of heritage houses. Together with other materials they gathered from the workshops, the result is an exquisite zen inspired garden where one can contemplate the journeys that the houses, and the families who once lived inside them, underwent in order for the garden to come into existence.”
