Watch for These Massive Art Pieces in Makati Come February 15

It's part of the much-awaited Art Fair Philippines.

(SPOT.ph) With the hopes of bringing art closer to the people, Art Fair Philippines also holds 10 Days of Art—a 10-day art festival that showcases public art pieces, promotes gallery shows, and holds art talks outside the confines of The Link from February 15 to 24. And this year's site-specific installations are more massive and interesting than ever as three artists revisit their old public art pieces while a Dutch national collaborates with local designers for a larger-than-life projection.

French-Filipino artist Olivia d' Aboville and Asian-American photographer Neal Oshima team up for "Plastics in Our Ocean"Plastics in Our Ocean" (2018), a two-part piece which will be set up at Greenbelt Park and the walkway that connects Landmark to The Link. The fully immersive installation hopes to remind viewers of the dystopia that can happen if we stop being mindful of our waste. d'Aboville and Oshima have previously collaborated for Chasm of Fantasies, an exhibit of waste-turned-art at the Ayala Museum in 2010.

Japanese sculptor Shinji Ohmaki experiments with stainless steel and LED lights to create a large vase-like vessel that plays with light and shadows. And when we say large, we mean double the size of a person! The piece titled "Gravity and Grace" was first displayed at Toyohashi Arts Theatre in Japan in 2016. You can find this at the Ayala Tower One's fountain area.
