TOYM IMAO Artist: sculptor + painter
Beginning May 15, 2015 to June 15, 2015
Ayala Museum Plaza

Last, Lost, Lust for Four Forgotten Episodes is a 13 foot high sculpture by Filipino artist Toym Imao. The exhibition is also the first under the museum’s new outdoor art program, OpenSpace.

Initially installed at the AS Steps of Palma Hall, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Last, Lost, Lust for Four Forgotten Episodes embodies multiple imagery depicting the Marcos regime, referencing to Voltes V characters. The famous anime mecha series was cut off the air during the Martial Law of the 70s, causing much ire to the youth back then, including the artist.

This is the first of three installations Toym Imao has committed to install at the Museum Plaza.
