WATCH: Muralist Archie Oclos Renders a Haunting Image of the Marawi Siege

The exhibit runs until November 18 at the UP Vargas Museum.


( Green Go Home, a project conceived by American artist Tomas Vu and Argentinian artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, arrived in Philippine shores on October 13 through a group show at the UP Vargas Museum in Quezon City. The exhibit, described as "social sculpture," aims to magnify the present political landscape through a wall installation of newsprint images that have been pasted on the walls, as if conversing with graffiti text on the site. For the Manila leg, local artists Buen Abrigo, Mike Adrao, Renz Lee, Gabby Nazareno, Iggy Rodriguez, and Jo Tanierla were invited to show their own images of recent protest actions in the country.




Also part of the project is UP Fine Arts-graduate Archie Oclos who is known for murals depicting socio-political issues and indigenous Filipino people. For Green Go Home, he rendered an image of Marawi residents in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur protesting the violence in their city amid the enacted Martial Law in Mindanao. The charcoal drawing was inspired by a photograph taken in August by Raphael Bosano of ABS-CBN.


Green Go Home runs until November 18 at 1/F Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center, University of the Philippines-Diliman. For more information, follow Green Go Home on Facebook.
