This exhibition features the works of two Filipino artists Toym Leon Imao and Lazaro Juan, whose visual response to concepts like benevolent assimilation and manifest destiny embodies their reaction to their country’s colonial past.
Indiosyncracies is born from the fusion of two ideas: Indio is a Spanish term used in the 16th - 19th centuries to describe the native inhabitants of the Philippines. Idiosyncrasy is defined as a condition which signifies how an individual, reacts, perceives, and experiences a common situation; where it may incur a sense of nostalgic memory for one person and disgust in another.
Lazaro Juan uses comic book-like visuals with a penchant for DIY aesthetics in his artistic approach. His work references are history, political and editorial cartoons during the American occupation of the Philippines, mixed with Catholic imagery and its iconography; while combining elements of humor and satire in depicting the violence, and the psychological strain of colonialism at its crudest form.
Toym Leon Imao’s works are rooted from his background in creating public art - monuments and shrines that depict different periods in the Philippines’ history. Currently under a Fulbright Scholarship in the U.S., he has focused on an alternative imaging of history that deals with colonial concepts such as hybridity to weave visual narratives that acknowledge the western pastiche of his cultural landscape while producing these images in processes grounded in eastern rituals and sensibilities.
