After{}life
Ongoing

2020

 

This body of work uses imagery of Christianity, mythology, and filipino culture to reimagine artworks as divine objects. The works seek to reclaim colonialist/imperialist understandings of insignia and regalia to forge new (or speculate upon existing) phenomena, canons of knowledge and folklore. Interested in redefining what a “sacred text” can look like, After{}life envisions a bridge between physical life and our contemporary understandings of the life after death, as well as our own place within each.
