Tears, Cuts & Ruptures: A Philippine Collage Review
By Cocoy Lumbao

Tears, Cuts & Ruptures brings to light the development of contemporary collage in the Philippines as it gathers eleven artists, Jed Escueta, Dina Gadia, Kaloy Olavides, Gary-Ross Pastrana, Kreskin Sugay, Gerardo Tan, Nilo Ilarde, Wire Tuazon, Poklong Anading and MM Yu, showing diverse works that demonstrate the many forms modern collage has gone through since Roberto Chabet’s early exhibitions during the mid-seventies. Rooted from this lineage of Formal, Conceptual, Dadaist and Pop sensibilities, the eleven artists reveal its transmutations into forms brought upon by present-day art practices, bestowing their works with images gathered from popular culture, comic books, media and photography. As a technique invariably taking the backseat from painting and the rest of the molded, collage in this exhibition undergoes close watch in an attempt to realize a modest history of its own. It seeks to unfold a growing relevance to current art practices and to secure a significant frame within it can place all its pieces to determine where it stands among the rest of contemporary art in the Philippines.

Tears, Cuts & Ruptures by opens at 6 pm in SLab September 16 and runs until the October 17, 2009. As a related gallery event, they will be having a musical evening called HAIL PRIMITIVE ROCK AND ROLL! (A Collage of the dumb, easy, noisy (anti?) music that killed King Beethoven) featuring The Sleepyheads! On September 23, 2009 from 6-9pm at SLab. Snippets of recognizable chords, riffs, shouts, thumps and guitar noises that ended the reign of serious music(Beethoven) and ushered the era of anybody-can-do-it Rock and Roll music!

Tears, Cuts & Ruptures will be shown alongside Dwelling by Frankie Callaghan at Silverlens Gallery and Archetypes by Stanley Ruiz at 20 Square.
