Eric Zamuco returns to mount his first exhibition after two years with “Cosmic Grounds,” opening on 18 January at 5 p.m. at Silverlens Gallery in Don Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City. This is his fifth show with the gallery.
Known for his introspective approach to art, Zamuco continues to transform everyday objects into thought-provoking pieces. He presents new sculptures and assemblages that encourage audiences to consider the wonder of the mundane.
The exhibit is a reminder of what is temporary and discovered when one is not looking. Zamuco’s interactive floor piece constructed with found material mirrors his own routine experience of neighborhood walks begun after a series of family and personal health scares starting in 2017.
“Cosmic Grounds” takes off from the objects Zamuco stumbled upon during his routes around his neighborhood and family province.
His first exhibition in two years, the artist has slowly built a personal archive of items found while he was in transit — a broken vase, headless heron, termite-eaten pillar and roofing shingles.
While not initially drawn to the material himself, Zamuco’s fascination with the objects came from their discarded and shattered state.
Exhibit runs until 15 February. For inquiries, contact [email protected] or 8816-0044.
