Grounded: Goldie Poblador's glass interactive sculpture "Ang Simula ng Pagsibol"

Featured contemporary artist Goldie Poblador talks about her glass, olfactory interactive sculpture "Ang Simula ng Pagsibol" currently part of the exhibit at the Lopez Museum. The exhibit dubbed "Grounded" is a literal and metaphorical take on the notitons of rootedness, engagement and mobility in scapes and interventions within and without these referenced sites.

"Featured contemporary artist Goldie Poblador talks about her glass, olfactory interactive sculpture "Ang Simula ng Pagsibol" currently part of the exhibit at the Lopez Museum. 

The exhibit dubbed "Grounded" is a literal and metaphorical take on the notitons of rootedness, engagement and mobility in scapes and interventions within and without these referenced sites.

This broadly interpreted theme is paralleled in the diversity of practices revealed alongside pieces from the collection of the Lopez Museum and Library. From Alma Quinto's research-propelled work with Pasig River Warriors to Eric Zamuco's allusive staging of seeming precariousness; from Goldie Poblador's touch-baiting hybrid of art and laboratory artifice to Barbara Hlali's painful depiction of bodily engagement; from Ahmed Al Shaer's comital take on natural selection to Toym Imao's cross-referencing folk and diasporic armature; ferom Kahed Hafez's tri-image ode to a stalled revolution to Josephine Turalba's dis-charged footwear bidding a traipse through a once private memory trove, Grounded is a posed exercise, of looking back and hopefully trudging forward despite the odds. 

Grounded will run until August 3, 2013. Lopez Museum and Library is at the G/F Benpres Bldg., Meralco cor. Exchange Rd., Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Museum hours are 8-5pm Mondays through Saturdays except holidays."
