You are invited to the opening reception of our group show, “Love Not Love” happening on February 13, 2020 at Kondwi in Poblacion, Makati City, Philippines. Exhibit will run from February 13 to March 5, 2020.
love not love examines a range of interpersonal relational cliches based on society’s pre-existing notions on the different forms of love that has been cemented into its collective consciousness. While it comes in multiple shapes, colors, and sounds, each of us have our own clear-cut definition of what love is and isn’t, and any attempt to commit to an all-encompassing interpretation will either fall short or fall into any one of the commonplace categories. That being said, we have come to the conclusion that one of the best possible ways to present these notions of love or not love is through the stereotypes themselves but done in the most tongue-in-cheek ways, to be taken in small doses with a grain of salt and a whole lot of love. Bringing their own charm, wit, and sarcasm to the space, creatives across different practices are invited to present their own laspag na perspectives on love as the centerpiece of one of the most anticipated (or dreaded) days of the year.
