Kandingan

Kandingan, 2004

These drawings and paintings were originally components of a large wall installation. A link to text and other images about this piece are here on Wofflehouse.

The work was an inquiry into the historic and current political turmoil in the southern Philippines, and the region’s lovely/lunatic contradictions of union and separation, of intimacy and violence. “Kandingan” is a Muslim wedding dance indigenous to the region.
