LITERAL is an art exhibit that showcases the creative aspects of our language through traditional and digital art and a combination of whimsical installations by 20 upcoming multimedia artists and designers from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
Featuring the individual and collective works of Kris Buhay, Ron Calderon, Miguel Cruz, Hai-son De Leon, Chelsea Delfin, Paul Christian Deriquito, Mariel Enriquez, Maria Ana Guina, Emil Javier, Patricia Manauis, Ana Marasigan, Romina Militante, Phoebe Raymundo, Mary Josephine Salas, Benson Salazar, John Mark Salvador, Severino Samson, Sharlene Sierra, Gabriel Ramon Topacio and Chadli Villacorte under the guidance of Sir Jesse Lazaro, this exhibit is a must-see for people from any age and stage.
LITERAL aims to make you think and ponder on the literal meaning of words frequently used and said. Through various artworks and installations that visually represent literal meanings, the exhibit seeks to capture people’s attention and focus it on the different ways they can see and understand expressions we normally use but don’t dwell on.
LITERAL intends to make words and sayings more thought provoking by expressing them in a seemingly ironic manner: literally.
Perceive words and sayings in a humorous light and visit us at the 1335MABINI Space for Contemporary Art from December 6 to 20. Artworks will be for sale. Net proceeds will go to World Vision for Yolanda victims. Admission is free!
