KALOY OLAVIDES x and m
CURATED BY ROBERTO CHABET

OPENING 7:00 PM, AUGUST 31 (FRIDAY) 2007
GREEN PAPAYA ART PROJECTS
EXHIBITION UNTIL SEPTEMBER 22 / GALLERY HOURS: 6-10 PM TUESDAY-SATURDAY

Subverting the process of academic painting, the artist breaks away from the confines of a bordered canvas and extends his painting by incorporating the surrounding spaces around the artwork, from the wall to another artwork to the opposite ends of the gallery, into the artwork itself.

x and m pushes further by manipulating different mass media such as print materials and video, and transform them into a hybrid medium, thereby exhibiting a process of manipulating the manipulator, and questioning the power of manipulation and the persona of the manipulator.

Congrats Kaloy!


Photos from the exhibit opening here. Was great to see old college friends again, most notably Lena and Kaloy, whom I probably haven’t seen for around 5 years since. Too bad had to leave early for work.

  1. Hi Astrid! This dude and I go way back college, dormmates kami, retro/ukay king yan before it was fashionable, nagdedeath-metal using classical guitars, etc. Kaya katuwa din na after siguro more than half a decade nakita ko si mokong.

    He is an excellent visual artist, big influence ko sya re pag-iisip sa pagtugtog ng music, tsaka he’ll surprise you with his sometime performance-art 🙂

    Ah, and I think his major exposure was in Sugarfree’s Mariposa video 🙂 You can find him in other music videos din.
