my friend and I was planning a collaboration performance. this photo is one of i envision. common objects that is floating in the bath tub.
Photography by Mary Robinson
i remembered my childhood in this artwork. our parents seldom went to the malls but when we did we always ate together and bought Soen (a brand for underwear) for my sister and i. When we opened the box we were always amused of how it was folded one by one and arranged very neatly. It was like a gift. While eating, my parents told us stories behind those boxes. they said that there were human beings who worked all day for girls like us to wear those underwear; and so we must take good care of them.
I am nostalgic to see this collage by
Mideo M. Cruz
this photo is a remnants of my performance happened during the first week of February 2014. the action begun at around 6 : 00 pm and i didn’t remember exactly the time when it ended. but i felt that i have been into it in a maximum of 30 minutes. i am currently exploring duration performance and this long performance is one of my first.
as you can see the objects i used were a collection of mongol pencil, if a student be able to see it s/he may reminisce of childhood. i tied all together and dipped it all in pig’s blood so that it may depict something that we normally see during holy week—”penitensya”.
I continued my penitensya and wrote "i promise to serve my country" endlessly on the blue-red-blue-red pad paper. like a penitence inside the classroom.
