Three shows at Silverlens

SILVERSLENS will be opening three shows on Aug. 17, namely Bare Necessities featuring works by the late Santiago Bose and curated by Patrick Flores, Wawi Navarroza’s Self-Portraits & The Tropical Gothic, and, James Clar’s Noise Field #1. The first is part of an exhibition series Santiago Bose: Painter, Magician which revisits Bose’s art through selected pieces from his extensive practice, marking turns in expression and the social contexts shaping it. The first phase is Bare Necessities. Wawi Navarroza: Self-Portraits & The Tropical Gothic is the artist’s 12th exhibition with the gallery. Self-portraits have been a recurring theme in her 20-year practice, but this is the first exhibition focusing solely on the form. Navarroza will be showing eight new pieces alongside three older works from different years. Noise Field #1 is James Clar’s first exhibition in the Philippines and with the gallery. The artist used laser scanners to create a 2D plane of light that is installed outside during the monsoon season. As it rains, the drops pass through the plane, sparkling as the laser hits them, and making a random field of noise. The three exhibits will be on view from Aug. 17 to Sept. 14 at Silverlens, 2263 Don Chino Roces Ave. Ext., Makati City.
