Ukkil at Sutla: The Traditional Decorative Arts and Textiles of Islamic Mindanao


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Magbassa Kita Foundation and UP Vargas Museum mark the end of Ramadan, and the celebration of the Eid’l Fit’r with an exhibition showcasing the traditional decorative arts and textiles of the Islamic Peoples of Mindanao.

Ukkil at Sutla features fine examples of two aspects of the traditional arts of Islamic Mindanao. Ukkil, the foliate designs that are found in a variety of household items, architectural details and royal paraphernalia, and interpreted in a range of materials ,from wood to silver, from carabao horn and gilt brass.

Sutla, on the other hand, is the silk weaving tradition once common among the Maranao, Maguindanao, Tausug and Yakan peoples. Now no longer practiced, the silk tradition is exemplified by important vintage examples of the Maranao Malong landap and andon, the Tausug pisyabit headscarves and kandit sashes, the restrained plaid malong of the Maguindanao and the tapestry-woven seputangan of the Yakan.

Complementing the objects and providing a continuum are artworks as well as archival materials on Mindanao from the Vargas Collection, which show how non-Islamic artists saw the peoples of Mindanao. Three large-scale works by National Artist Abdulmari Imao will also be presented alongside the objects to show how the Ukkil tradition has been re-interpreted by a contemporary artist.

Ukkil at Sutla opens on Tuesday, August 5 at 4pm at the Vargas Museum.
