We Saw Things That Others Didn’t is a group exhibition of artists from the Philippines carefully curated by Nilo Ilarde. Included are artworks by Soler Santos, Felix Bacolor, Angel Ulama, Michelle Perez, Marija Vicente, Raena Abella, Atsuko Yamagata, Monica Laurel Delgado, and Poch N.
The exhibition brings in a valuable cornucopia of images and processes that sift through themes, ideas, and subjects that lie at the heart of each of the participating artist’s individual practice. Perhaps open to a misread as a boastful statement of affairs that sends a message of reversal and exclusivity, the exhibition rather delves on the impetus of sharing discoveries gathered from the respective specialties of each that cover painting, sculpture and photography.
We Saw Things That Others Didn’t departs in its awareness and leniency. In retrospect, one of the exemplar fathers of modernity is known for admitting that creativity was achieved through grand theft. After the acquittal of the relative follies committed against the said art autonomy, it stands, in its own justification. We are held accountable. We are accomplices. Its end absolutely allows for the means.
