Zachary Alcoseba gives new life to the lowly driftwood in “Stories From the River,” a one-man exhibition that will open on September 5, 2018 at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts Gallery in Intramuros, Manila.
As he transforms wooden debris into functional forms and works of art, Alcoseba also pays homage to the Subanon or Subanen, the riverine people of Mindanao. His creative process involves magkono wood and the Subanon indigenous community in his hometown of Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental in Northern Mindanao. This exhibit then is a fitting way of drumming up excitement for the NCCA’s celebration of National Indigenous People’s month in October.
“Stories From the River” runs until September 30, 2018. The NCCA Gallery is located at 633 General Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila. For inquiries, please call (632) 527-2205 or email [email protected].
