‘ONE DAY I WILL FIND THE RIGHT WORDS, AND THEY WILL BE SIMPLE’
A solo exhibition by Norberto Roldan
TAKSU KL, 30 Oct– 16 Nov 2014
TAKSU Kuala Lumpur is proud to present ‘One Day I Will Find The Right Words, And They Will Be Simple‘, a solo exhibition by Norberto Roldan from 30 October till 16 November 2014. This series of new paintings trails the artist’s practice in terms of his given predisposition to using found objects in his assemblages and installations. The paintings are composed of found images and found texts. Apart from these paintings being a juxtaposition of image and text, they are also dichotomies of past and present, East and West, colonizer and colonized, civilized and primitive, truth and lies, love and hate, war and peace.
NORBERTO ROLDAN (b. 1953, The Philippines) took his BA in Philosophy at St. Pius X Seminary, his BFA at the University of Santo Tomas and his MA in Art Studies at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. He has represented the Philippines in various international exhibitions in Asia- Pacific, Europe and the USA. He was represented in three landmark surveys of Southeast Asian contemporary art: New Art from Southeast Asia 1992 by the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Negotiating Home History and Nation: Two Decades of Contemporary Art in Southeast Asia 1991-2011 by the Singapore Art Museum and most recently, No Country: Contemporary Art For South/ Southeast Asia by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Roldan who works and lives in Manila is currently artistic director of Green Papaya Art Projects, an independent multi-discplinary platform he co-founded in 2000 while practicing as a visual artist. His works are in the collection of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Singapore Art Museum, US State Department, Deutsche Bank, Ateneo Art Gallery, Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas, San Miguel Corporation, The Bencab Museum, Carlos Oppen Cojuangco Foundation, and private collections in Asia, Europe and the USA.
