Kuwentong Kutsero by Ged Merino | Intramuros Project: Boat Recollections by Diokno Pasilan
February 17 - May 31Free
Ged Merino’s Kuwentong Kutsero reminds us that the past is still with us. It is simultaneously an act of Proustian remembrance and an imaginative tribute to the hardy kutseros.
The very title can be read in two ways: as often tall tales told by the kalesa drivers themselves to while the time away, and as the informal kasaysayan, or history, of this form of mass transportation and their working-class proprietors.”
Boat Recollections revisits the process of boat-making as a recollection of memory and material. The exhibit is reflective of the artist’s treasured childhood spent in a countryside island in the Philippines – his life and art practice enriched by the local communities and their material culture.
Both exhibitions will open on February 17 at 3:00PM and will run until May 31, 2019.
