Scenes from a Saturday spent with friends, history, and creative commentary. Props to the organizers behind the first-ever Manila Biennale, for doing a free open house right before the actual events and talks happening all month long. Intramuros, with its solemn walls, wide-open parks, and peaceful cobble pathways, was the perfect setting for the exhibits — in fact, the juxtaposition couldn’t have been more apt. Quite a few art pieces and installations tackled freedom, justice, and society. It’s sobering to realize that we’re still challenging familiar oppressors and issues that we’ve been dealing with for hundreds of years.
Made a video of some pieces I particularly liked. I need to step up my editing and shooting skills — kids these days are so good at this digital media stuff; I’ve been doing this for more than 12 years and I’m still so meh. But what the heck. It’s for my heart, for my frail memory.
