Exhibition

February 25, 1986. Philippines

Exhibiting Artists: Dominic Mangila

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 05 Aug 2010 - 15 Aug 2010

New York-based Filipino painter Dominic Mangila presents a solo exhibition entitled February 25, 1986. Philippines. The show presents a group of Mangila's paintings that depict events leading to Ferdinand Marcos leaving the Malacanang Palace and conceding to Corazon Aquino as President of the Philippines on February 25,1986.  The scenes include Ninoy Aquino's assasination, the Sikorsky helicopter landing at the Malacanang Palace, interiors of the Marcoses' living spaces and the EDSA revolution.

Mangila's artistic process involves the construction of Philippine history paintings through an amalgamation of research and collection of historical records; juxtaposition, alteration and appropriation of photographic images that represent an historic event; and internalization of a witness' assumed and imagined interiority of mind, including invasion of the witness' privacy of experience.
