Echo Studies by Maria Taniguchi - An exhibition at the Vargas Museum, University of the Philippines
The Vargas Museum presents the exhibition Echo Studies by Maria Taniguchi. It opens on 30 March 2011, 4pm at the Lobby and West Wing Gallery and ends on 28 May 2011.
Echo Studies reflects Taniguchi’s practice in the “sublimation of the intersections in information sharing and research”. It focuses on how the researcher’s decisions, sensitivities, and process continuously challenge scientific objectivity in the creation and manipulation of data. Employing sound, video, painting, drawing, and installation, the artist probes relationships among subject, representation, and process. Taniguchi brings in this exhibition a large-scale geometric abstract painting, Untitled Mirrors rendered meticulously with black brick-like designs revealing the potential of pattern to “reflect information”. Echo Studies also foregrounds the artist’s notion of the tropics through a recent work in Romblon, an island south of the Manila known for marble production.
