OBJECTS




OBJECTS
December 22, Wednesday
6-9 pm

This December in 20SQUARE, Patricia Eustaquio presents Objects, projects from her art studio.

A project connotes thought and study, and plenty of experiment. Or, as Eustaquio calls hers: play and laboratory. Objects are sketches and a new take on crochet and cardboard. Out of her “diverse trove of materials”, Eustaquio crafts new and constantly evolving forms. It is her version of the “Frankenstein” process: “here, Anna’s arm, there, Frank’s liver.” Her project is curious and unafraid to be incomplete.

And as every project begins with an idea and clashes with a philosophical framework, so does Objects. It is a critique of modernism. Written as a critical response, the works express how modernism has been a constant influence in academia, architecture, design and art, that it still “haunts us so”. To Eustaquio, modernism is a hovering cloud even in her own studio. She questions: how modern is something that is more than a hundred years old?

But without an answer, Eustaquio can only react and reject. Responding to modernism’s grasp on society’s definition of aesthetic and progressive. Its effect on her own psychology moves Eustaquio to express modernism in her Objects, and with it, announce her wish to move on.

Objects by Patricia Eustaquio opens simultaneously with Review with Mariano Ching, Christina Dy, Patricia Eustaquio and Gary-Ross Pastrana on December 22,2010.
