ANONYMOUS ANIMALS: METAPHOR, MYTH, MAGIC, AND REALITY

February 12, 2019 - March 6, 2019

ANONYMOUS ANIMALS: METAPHOR, MYTH, MAGIC, AND REALITY
Dumaguete Artists @ NCCA Gallery
February 12- March 6, 2019

A group of Dumaguete-based artists in collaboration with the Mariyah Gallery bring to the fore
an exhibition called “Anonymous Animals: Metaphor, Myth, Magic, and Reality” to celebrate
the National Arts Month which will open at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts
Gallery in Intramuros, Manila on February 2019.
Thirteen artists embark on awakening their anonymous animals. They present art pieces that
are informative and engaging, interesting and telling. They tell stories honed out of personal
mythology, folk tale, empirical experience, history and travel – and the imaginary, magical,
religious reality.
And in the process, artists channelled through various interpretations of the theme and
explored different usage of materials; and given flexibility of engagement regarding the choice
of ideas for the artists to present – by picking up a term from the theme as a point of departure
for their idea or ideas of subject matters; and even opt to immerse into a more comprehensive
and in-depth interpretation of the whole theme itself.
Anonymous Animals is a travelling art exhibition. The first Anonymous Animals Exhibition was
held in 2011 and the recent one in 2018 at the Ariniego Art Gallery located inside the Silliman
University campus.
The participating artists are Jana Jumalon Alano, Hersley Casero, Amelia Duwenhoegger, Sharon
Dadang-Rafols, Raz Salvarita, Rianne Dawn Salvarita, Danni Sollesta, Kitty Taniguchi, Michael
Teves, Iris Tirambulo, Babbu Wenceslao, Karl Witllin, and Alma Zosan.

the Arts- National Committee on Art Galleries. It is dedicated for the promotion and
