When you hear sounds, what do you see? When you see colors, what do you hear?
For the Ortigas Art Festival 2021, vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery presents the group exhibit “A QUIET CHAOS” with a selection of works by Roman Soleño, Alaya Esguerra, Little Wing Luna, Avie Felix and Gary Rojas. These five artists come together with a common curiosity to visualize silences and noises -- not only by denotative terms but also metaphorically as illustrations of life, a halting of that life, and the order of no order at all and vice versa.
The past year has been a series of changes on what we can see and what we can hear. Now lives are “curated” on what’s available at home, through our gadgets or by our limited freedom to go places. In this exhibit, sound and visual art collaborate and intertwine in process and object to explore the nuances of how what we hear and see affect not only each other but also other aspects of being and living.
“A Quiet Chaos” opens on February 24 and runs until March 31 at the Ground Floor of Estancia Mall East Wing, along with exhibits of other artists and art collectives.
