Recto/Verso: New Collages and Paintings by Gerardo Tan

Wazzup Pilipinas!

ARCHIVO 1984 GALLERY proudly presents RECTO/VERSO: New Collages And Paintings by Gerardo Tan, opening at 5 PM on Friday, June 2, 2017.

Gerardo Tan (born 1960) works across media from painting, collage and artist books to video and found objects in room-sized installations. His materials range from traditional ones like oil, acrylic to commonplace ones found like found photographs, dust, mirrors, and bundy clocks. Tan’s works deals with issues of representation and conceptual plays. He recreates images culled from the world of art and mass media using a variety of mediums. Gerardo Tan has had one solo exhibit with Archivo 1984 titled “Nothing Is More Real Than Nothing”.

In Recto/Verso: New Collages and Paintings, Gerardo Tan continues his ongoing series of constructed pictures consisting of images mined from the world of art and the commonplace. In doing so, Tan recontextualizes and empties them of their erstwhile significance while infusing them with new itinerant meanings. In these new series, Tan takes a look at the back of collages and paints them, revealing what is normally hidden. This objective treatment of the collage considers it as an object and anthropological specimen, and implying that the gallery is an archive of assembled relics.

ARCHIVO 1984 GALLERY is located at Level 2, Warehouse 1, #2135 Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City, Philippines.
