Ongoing: SaLang#1: Jason Dy SJ “Not One Less/Wala Ni Isa” (until 14 April 2018)
“Not One Less / Tak Satupun” is a durational art project that started in Giri Sapto Artists’ Cemetery, Yogyakarta, Indonesia as an art residency grant to artist and priest, Jason Dy, SJ in 2017. The project paid respects to the departed Indonesian artists and humanists as well as remembering the victims of Extra-Judicial Killings (EJK) in the Philippines under the current administration. Together with the Indonesian sculptor and imam Pak Pramono Pinunggul and the artists of PSP and Perahu, Dy offered a gesture of committing oneself to the option for life in a “culture of death” through the ritual of offering flowers, releasing of birds, and interreligious prayer service in the said artists’ cemetery in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
As a return exhibition and part of the Lenten observances in Lucban, Quezon, “Not One Less / Wala Ni Isa” focuses on “the ritual of prayer for the dead and offering flowers to them in an attempt to appease their troubled spirits, to offer a gesture of solidarity with the families they left behind, and to invite the public to contemplate the fragility of life in the hope of respecting and protecting it.”
Upcoming: SaLang#2: Dansoy Coquilla “DyipFie” (28 April 2018)
