Zero In 4: Zero In Constructs / Juan Arellano: Drawing Space

October 6, 2005 to April 8, 2006

Curated by Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez and Claro Ramirez

The exhibition explored the dynamics of space in relation to memory-making and acts of self-imaging. Threaded through by pictorial anecdotes in the life of this often overlooked modernist painter-architect, the show coaxed visitors to consider Juan Arellano’s work by summoning intersections of relationships. By inviting Arellano’s nephew and fellow artist, Datu Arellano, Drawing Space also attempted to navigate between geographies of built structure and psychological terrains visited and thus virtually (albeit fleetingly) possessed. It brought together landscapes and mindscapes, which made for disjoined accounts of flight/diaspora and restless habitation in pursuit of one Filipino’s constructed sense of self.
