*ArtSpeak | Eric Zamuco*
*Wednesday, 26 November 2014*

*2005 Ateneo Art Award winner Eric Zamuco talks about his exhibit Another
Other at the Ateneo Art Gallery.*

Eric Zamuco’s exhibit at the Ateneo Art Gallery brings together works from
the past 5 years created in two countries The installations on exhibit run
the gamut of school chairs with neon lights to cut up pieces of comics to
used bars of soap and toddler chairs to a wall full of photos, all
meticulously arranged by the artist himself.

In *Story Book Endings, *he fashions particle boards formerly used as
shipping palettes into shelves and places on them book ends with laser cut
images taken from Esteban Villanueva’s Basi Revolt series of paintings. The
images are depictions of hangings and decapitations of local rebels by
foreign colonizers that speak of a swift implementation of punishment to
ensure colonial order. The work can also be seen as a study on shame and
how one group is benefitted by it and the other denied of it. Perhaps
literally connecting it to narrative, the work is also about unresolved
histories, open ended issues and perhaps even of cultural and historical
dead ends for a nation.

Find out more of the interesting and engaging back stories of the works in
Eric Zamuco’s *Another Other *at ArtSpeak | Eric Zamuco on Wednesday, 26
