Gallery News: Pinto Art Museum launches the Taimis Project

Rosalinda L. Orosa - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Pinto Art Museum launches “The Taimis Project,” a series of linked events inspired by the love story of Jose Rizal and fiancee Leonor Rivera,” on April 6, 4 p.m. at Pinto Art Museum, 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights Subd., Antipolo City, Rizal.

Taimis was Rizal’s term of endearment to for his erstwhile fiancee.

Highlight of the project is the unveiling of a sculptural work by Joel Alonday of a “tomb” of Maria Clara, Rizal’s fictional heroine widely believed to be based on Rivera. Also featured in the space is Alab Pagarigan’s bas relief version of Jose Santos III’s “La Misma Duena,” executed in cold-cast marble.

There will also be a performance of an original score in cello by Nonong Buencamino and a work of spoken word by Hammed Bolotauolo. A lecture on the story of Rizal’s relationship with Rivera will also be delivered by Ambeth Ocampo at the museum’s Silangan Studio for Education.

Taking into account the significance of letters between Rizal and Rivera, the project initiates “Undelivered,” a performance work that lets participants write anonymous letters to their own unrequited or failed relationships.

In cooperation with Yuchengco Museum, Pinto Art Museum also features copies of two extant correspondences of Rivera, along with other artifacts.

The project is jointly curated by Dr. Joven Cuanang and Riel Hilario.

Joel Alonday, Carlo Saavedra and Jerson Samson at Pinto Art Musuem

Pinto Art Museum presents three simultaneous solo shows — Joel Alonday’s “Topiaries,” Carlo Saavedra’s “Random Acts,” and Jerson Samson’s “Agos” — which are slated from April 6 to May 1 at Pinto Art Museum, 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights Subd., Antipolo City, Rizal.

In “Topiaries,” Alonday showcases cold-cast marble and resin sculptures that translate the mythic image of the human body as a life-giving and life-sustaining tree or plant.

Saavedra challenges the viewer to come to terms with scale, often using the canvas as an arena of dispute between form and nothingness in “Random Acts.”

Samson’s sculptures in “Agos” reflect the disputes, passionate affairs, feverish ambitions of ordinary folk in the performance of their everyday existence in an urban society marked with scarcity and confusion.
