 The exhibition opens new doors for these age-old traditions through the artists’ unique contemporary take on them. Moreover, it reintroduces to the people a paradigm of a community governed by peace, harmony, and fellowship—some of the qualities that matter the most in this period of our continuous history.” – Franz Sorilla IV, Philippine Tatler

“My top picks at the first Venice Biennale since it was postponed during the Covid-19 pandemic, include artists whose work reflects the instability of the world exacerbated by the climate change emergency and war, or who offer an escape from reality through the creation of surreal, dream-like imagery.” – Lee Sharrock, FAD Magazine

PH’s ‘woven sounds’ and elegant weaves at 2022 Venice Art Biennale

The Philippine Star

Sound transforms into something visual and tactile, and then becomes sound again. A metaphor for how art or life or the world itself is changing at a dizzying pace, and one way of dealing with it is being open and participatory.” – Igan D’Bayan, The Philippine Star

“The long and winding weave: The “Andi taku e sana, Amung taku di sana / All of us present, This is our gathering” exhibition is a process-oriented one. It consists of field recordings, music and sound transcriptions, art patterns and weaving.”  – Igan D’Bayan, The Philippine Star

Through the exhibition, we hope to introduce and express ourselves (the Filipino people) to the world. Our country is rich in culture and tradition, and each piece of Filipino art was inspired by a story. We believe these stories deserve to be shared and passed on from one person to another, and that the Filipino talent and creativity is worth bringing to the global stage.” – Loren Legarda in an interview with Igan D’Bayan, The Philippine Star
