Space by Allison Wong David


Ayala Museum, with the support of Fujifilm Philippines, is proud to present another OpenSpace offering this Christmas season 2017 and Allison Wong David’s fifth solo exhibition, SPACE.

The outdoor exhibition is composed of two series of works which focus on perception, presence, and awareness: three works collectively called Place and a series of receptacles filled with what the artist calls the Facilitators.

Stainless steel sheets cut in the form of pentagons enclosing organic shapes, suspended on acrylic sheets supported by steel frames, comprise each of the works called Place.

The Facilitators, on the other hand, are metal boxes with two sets of square holes in them: one to isolate and frame a minute section of the surroundings; and the other, a window through which one may focus a cellphone camera to take a shot of the image isolated by the other hole. The image is mediated, once again, by a reflective stainless steel sheet before it reaches the camera. Usually, the photographic images produced using the facilitators do not resemble anything clearly identifiable from the immediate surroundings.

Space provides viewers with breathing space and time to reflect—on the work or on personal meditations—amidst the hustle and bustle of the Makati Central Business District. Through quiet disruption, passersby are invited to short moments of awe, wonder, and contemplation.

The exhibition will be on view from November 21, 2017 – January 14, 2018. For more information, visit the artist’s website or call 759 82 88.
