MONO


Artist’s Statement:

MONO
by Kiko Escora

We are all ultimately alone. We wake up in this world alone, engage our own lives alone and eventually face death alone. Yet we all too easily forget that this is one of the most natural of human conditions – to be alone. We have somehow managed to stigmatize it, equating it to loneliness or hollowness or even to being incomplete - states that don’t necessarily have anything to do with the condition.

In these times of easy access to information, of instant gratification and of endless possibilities, ­we are misled to seize the moment and to literally busy ourselves to death. Along the way, in our very short lives, we have learned to take for granted some of the very basic pleasures in life – the stillness of being with oneself for example, or the luxury of being boring, or tuning out of the chaotic world that we have made for ourselves, or the very simple joy of just being alone.



About the artist:

Born in 1970 in the Philippines, Kiko Escora is a Thirteen Artist Awardee (2003) of the Cultural Centre of the Philippines and has taken part in various solo and group exhibitions in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea and Indonesia. He has also participated in several art fairs in Singapore, Cebu City, Dubai, Miami, New York, Beijing and Hong Kong, as well as auctions at Christie's and Sotheby's.
