PUTAJE


Fresh from their successful group exhibitions in Singapore and Malaysia , the six young visual artists from Antipolo, collectively known as Sangviaje – Jaypee Samson, Guerrero Habulan, Joven Mansit, John Paul Antido, Edric Daniel and Dennis Fortozo – presents "Putahe", their 4th group exhibition which will open on Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at Art Informal.

Sangviaje explores the intertwining relevance of food with culture and society. For the artist group, the subjective premise is: "You are what you eat." They take this a step further in considering food as determinants of history's pedagogical system, religious perspectives, social structures, economics and globalization, politics and instinctive communal survival as part of the big picture. From the first stage of food preparation down to its consumption, food distinctively distresses positions of individual persona as much as cultural identity. It has its effects on ethnic affiliation, gender constructs, notions of hierarchy, regional, micro-regional, caste systems and class based affiliations, national identity and so on. Food then can be used variously as a signifier of cosmopolitanism, globalism, localism, traditionalism or even nationalism.

Sangviaje analytically and satirically traverses the notion of food as culture and culture as food and what distinguishes it from other phenomena.


Putaje opens on the 11th of November at Art Informal, 277 Connecticut St., Greenhills East, Mandaluyong City. For inquiries, sms 0918 899 2698 or visit www.artinformal.com.
