I'm curating a show! Tadaaaaaaa

If you’re seeking refuge, it’s not in the Curved House. The home as a domain that is generally attributed to women is without conflict or terror. Rather, it houses one’s most intimate fears and fragile psyche, nurturing both peace and unrest, dreams and nightmares.

Curved House depicts of an unsafe place where violence, power struggle and distress are exposed and executed through the manipulation of different media, from organic to found objects, to marble dust, acrylic on canvas and printed word. The particular usage of familiar yet foreboding objects and symbols is a challenge to the spatial and habitual experience of a household—misplaced doors without keys, an empty nest, a tower of books, a plate of broken glass, a room remade from memory, a spider out in the open, a web of chaos, portraits of restless faces and a display of the male phallus.

After two years of conceptualization, Curved House finally debuts as an exposition of personal ordeals and disconcerting visions of twenty four women participants namely, Ambie Abano, Agnes Arellano, Marika Constantino, Kiri Lluch Dalena, Maan de Loyola, Racquel de Loyola, Rica Estrada, Karen Flores, Lian Ladia, Cathy Lasam-Ballo, Lea Lim, Kat Medina, Eden Ocampo, Siddharta Perez, Alma Quinto, Ling Quisumbing Ramilo, Dang Sering, Bru Sim, AJ Tolentino, Mimi Tecson, Lia Torralba, Teta Tulay, Josephine Turalba, and Con Cabrera, curator of the show.

The Blanc Compound opens the exhibition on June 2, 2012, reception starts at 6pm. Curved House is on view until June 23, 2012. The Blanc Compound is located at 359 Shaw Blvd. Interior Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City. A curator's walkthrough and artists talk is scheduled on June 16, 3 to 6 pm.
