The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) presents the first solo exhibition of artist and musician Vinty Lava. Entitled Yellow Green Sound Town, the exhibit opens on October 7, 6 p.m. at the CCP’s Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery).
In Yellow Green Sound Town, Vinty Lava’s fictive reimagining of plot characters is spawned from the repository of music used for his videos. He investigates the evocative power of sound to entwine locations with notes, seasons to rhythm, and people to the encompassing musical tone. His video installations simulate the fictional world he wants his viewers to immerse in. Inversely, some of the images he uses are amalgamations of the two-dimensional characters he introduces in his paintings. This allows him to retain the subliminal dimension of music and provides the audience with the participatory role of interpreting the images and sound independently.
Lava will also be giving an artist talk on 19 October, Wednesday, 4pm, at the CCP’s MKP Hall. Yellow Green Sound Town will be on view until 20 November 2016. Exhibit viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-6pm.
