Press release of Roberto Chabet's exhibition 'Tabo' curated by Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez at the Lopez Memorial Museum from 10 November 2011 to 14 April 2012.
'As the third to the last of a series of exhibitions for 2011, Roberto Chabet’s 'Tabo' features a video installation inspired by the opening chapter of Jose Rizal’s novel El Filibusterismo. A first for Chabet, the video installation commemorates Rizal’s 150th birth anniversary and becomes a metaphor for the ephemeralities in culture, history and everyday life. Chabet’s other works, which are part of the Lopez Museum’s permanent collection will also be shown, including the multi-paneled painting Four Directions from 1999 and two of his earliest paintings on chipboards. Alongside this is Pablo Biglang-awa’s D-I-Y Chabet, videos that show the process of art making reduced to a step-by-step, connect –the-dots, paint-by-numbers exercise, in reference to Chabet’s archive housed at Lopez Museum.
The exhibition is part of 'Roberto Chabet: Fifty Years,' a year-long series of exhibitions organised by King Kong Art Projects Unlimited in various venues in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Manila from 2011 - 2012.
