Plan A didn’t work so, we’re on Plan B…Plan Bahala Na!
VOCAS artist residency exhibition exploring the culture bearer art of the Philippines and Babaylan-Inspired art that focuses on community art participation. This exhibition also explores the creative and spiritual journey of Toronto-based artist-facilitator Jennifer Maramba in ‘finding’ Kapwa, Toronto to Philippines ~ Philippines to Toronto. Bahala Na!
Plan B! Participatory Installations:
kapwa weaving – using ukay ukay / wagwag fabric materials, participants will be encouraged to add, continue, collaborate and/or attempt to complete a weaving installation within an intimate VOCAS space.
hwayu! (beautiful!) – a collaborative sound / experiential installation with Ruel Bimuyag, JR Punzalan, and Kawayan Punzaramba. Sounds of the healing work of Fang-Od, mambabatok or tattoo artist in Kalinga can only attempt to describe one’s spiritual experience to attain the marks of beauty.
torontilippines – a series of collaborative ‘exquisite corpse’ drawings with Filipino-Canadian artists and Philippine-based artists. These pencil drawings are the manifestations of bridging cultures and people. Jennifer Maramba will be in attendance to facilitate ‘exquisite corpse’ drawings with participants.
In collaboration with Katrin De Guia, Ruel Bimuyag, JR Punzalan, Kawayan Punzaramba and YOU!!
