Take a break from your monotonous weekend with video games and art at GlitchGlitch

The exhibit opens on January 23.

 

(SPOT.ph) GlitchGlitch sounds like a double whammy, but it’s actually the opposite—it’s the collective name of visual artists Crist Espiritu and Angge Lorente, and is also the title of their upcoming joint exhibit. The name originated from their belief that “art should act as a glitch in the boring programmed routine that most people are stuck in.” For the last few years, both artists have been collaborating on commissioned murals and street art pieces. So if you don't want to be stuck on your couch this weekend, head on to Art Underground on January 23, 6 p.m for the show's opening.

Manila-based visual artist Crist Espiritu explores how nostalgia and memories define a person by zooming in on specific childhood memories and fusing them with present-day aspects. He combines the innocence of being a kid with the pessimism that comes with adulthood. Old cartoons, video games, and comic books are deconstructed and thrown into twisted, humorous scenes.

“Internal Leak” by Angge Lorente

 

Although Angge Lorente differs from Espiritu in terms of style, they have parallel views of art. Through her surrealist style in painting, she explores day-to-day idiosyncrasies and how people try to adapt to society. Lorente, for this show, relates her observations to video games and focuses on these situations’ “glitches,” which she believes are natural occurrences that we have to learn to deal with. “Imperfections define us”—we couldn’t agree more.
