BARAHA SANG PANGABUHI Works by Brenda Fajardo 12 Nov - 12 Dec 2015 Opening reception: 12 Nov / 7 pm / Negros Museum
In "Baraha Sang Pangabuhi," we get a good glimpse of Brenda Fajardo's abiding interest, or better to say, her resolute belief in the potency of woman, of the tarot, and of the myth. This is the leitmotif that runs through the pieces that are exhibited at the heart of Fajardo’s native clearing as well as the crucible of her creative vocation. Negros has significantly honed her art and continues to shape her ties to it. It is the land and its history inhabited by people of the day and ancestors of the seasons that have imbued her temper with a vital energy. It is what we might call a folk energy, homespun but with worldwide complicities, linking up diverse historical contexts across the Philippine social condition as marked by the presence of woman, the divination of the tarot, and the unfolding of myth.
"Baraha Sang Pangabuhi" opens on 12 November, 7 pm at The Negros Museum located on Gatuslao Street, Bacolod City, Negros. The exhibition runs from 12 Nov - 12 Dec 2015.
