Tales from the Land of 7000 Islands is a group show of contemporary Filipino artists Ben Albino, Moreen Austria, Maiya Balboa, Cherie Bitanga, Chloe Dellosa, Patrick Fernandez, Jonathan Joven, Amanda Lapus Santos, Jojit Solano, Dexter Sy and Jayson Tejada.
With their vivid colourings reminiscent of deep cerulean waters, verdant mountains and fiery crimson sunsets, the artists showcase the role of folklore in shaping Filipino culture. Stories of love, legendary figures, creation myths and beloved characters from folktales which have been passed on from generation to generation are used as themes for the artists’ visions.
