Manila – Wilfredo Offemaria’s URNA 2.0 travels to Museo De La Salle in celebration of National Arts Month 2018.
URNA 2.0 refigures the urna—similarly an altar, but used in smaller and more intimate traditions, frequently at home. Offemaria plays with the metaphorical tendencies of religion where he recognized Christianity as a religion filled with, and built on significations that hold and employ narratives and rituals, which resist from being understood at a superficial level. These significations demand critical eyes and interpretations.
The exhibit shows the artist’s shift from his previous exhibition Retablo 2.0 exhibited in 2017 at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Gallery where he reimagined the retablo—the grandiose centerpiece of the church interior.
URNA 2.0 by Wilfredo Offemaria, Jr. is brought to you by Museo De La Salle and supported by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts-National Committee on Art Galleries (NCAG) in celebration of the National Arts Month. The exhibit will run until 31 March 2018. With an ART TALK by the artist Offemaria scheduled on 13 March 2018, 10am.
