KIRI DALENA is based in Manila. She is a visual artist and filmmaker known internationally for her works that lay bare the social inequalities and injustices that continue to persist, particularly in the Philippines. Her active involvement in the mass struggle to uphold human rights amidst state persecution is the foundation for her art practice that underscores the relevance of protest and civil disobedience in contemporary society.
LIZZA MAY DAVID is based in Berlin. She is a visual artist interested in gaps and silences in personal and collective archives and experiments with forms of activation or disturbance through abstract painting. She navigates through affects and moments that elude representability, leading to experimental approaches for the very same reason. She does not assume the existing binary simplifications of the world, but rather thinks relationally in crossroads, turning points, overlapping and branching out, finding further expression in collaborations, architectural interventions or installations.
JACLYN REYES is based in New York and is an artist, designer, and cultural organizer. Her work is not defined by the disciplines nor materials she engages with. As a diasporic Filipina in the United States, her work is driven by explorations of historic and epistemic violence and the mechanics of trauma within culture. How could those of us with troubled histories honor our cultural memory - or lack thereof - without romanticizing or thoughtlessly repeating it? Can we metabolize our resilience to resurrect our most authentic imaginations for the future? These questions prompt continuous interrogation of community, place, representation, history, trauma and transnationalism.
