In Between Spaces

Manny Padernos

Artist Studio & Exhibition

11 Jul 2021, 11am – 8pm
12–13 Jul 2021, 11am – 6pm

The artist will be working on site-specific installations that respond to the space, architecture and the environment. Padernos proposed work is a suspended structure based on the Filipino traditional sleeping mat, composed of paper strips woven into twines. The materials used and the space where the installation is made denote the idea of construction, packaging and domestic life, an ode to his home and a creation of shelter wherever the artist goes.
