Cosmic Groundings: Conversations on Art and the Otherworldly
8 February 2020, 4:30 - 6:00 PM
Silverlens, 2263 Don Chino Roces Avenue Extension
Makati City, Philippines
In conjunction with its exhibit Cosmic Grounds, SILVERLENS hosts a discussion on art and spirituality with Filipino artists Eric Zamuco and Fr. Jason Dy, SJ to be moderated by Yael Buencamino.
Spirituality can be an influential force for many artists, be it directly or indirectly. For Zamuco, it had a subtle effect on his process. To the artist, encountering the materials he uses was not by happenstance but by providence. By transforming and reassembling discarded materials, Zamuco redeems these objects to give them new meaning in his exhibit Cosmic Grounds. For Fr. Jason Dy, SJ, he integrates art into his studies in theology and his pastoral ministry. His oeuvre consisting of sculptures and installations reflect his thoughts on faith and culture. Together with Yael Buencamino, our speakers engage in a conversation on the place of spirituality in contemporary art today.
