w.o.p APRIL 22 | Martha Atienza MAN IN SUIT Artist Talk
WHEN ROUTINE IS ALL THERE IS
WEDNESDAYS OPEN PLATFORM
Martha Atienza ARTIST-TALK, 8PM, APRIL 22
BAR OPENS 7PM
Surely as the rains gently counter the yearly hellish summer heat there is no escape from the occasional nostalgia finding its way in the newly wet and slippery pavements. Little mud puddles that seem like pools of reflection of a thirsty city. Creeping like a vein meanwhile marking the passage of time, a season to another. Even routine eventually loops it's way out into a new cycle of repetition, that is probably what they make out of the inevitable. And despite the lack of any clear seasonal change here in the islands, we almost always somehow look the sublime in the eye and overtake its slippery grip.
If you think you missed it, think again because here is your chance to catch Martha Atienza's exhibit/installation Man In Suit before she heads off and caps her six-month long stay in the tropics. As all appropriate closing ceremonies, this one will not pass by without the ceremonial artist-talk. This Wednesday, Martha tackles the poetics and malleability of this touring work as it makes it's last Manila round. So, better catch this, lest you miss out on the opportunity of intimate creative interaction.
