The Cultural Center of the Philippines is proud to present house|cards, an installation by Mica Cabildo and Stephanie Choi. The exhibition will run from 7 April to 22 May 2016 at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby) of the CCP. 

house|cards is a space of ambiguity: the large scale installation is constructed out of sheets of a temporary yet sturdy material. Individual panels frame expanded building units, each containing multiples and variations of images evocative of the internal turmoil accompanying an external disaster. As the viewer shifts perspective the prints appear at times orderly and still, at other times chaotic and gyrating. 

In house|cards, Mica Cabildo contemplates the typhoon—a force familiar to inhabitants of the Philippines—from afar during her residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude. Stephanie Choi explores the possibilities offered by the unique features of the gallery space and takes into account its historical function as a space of passage from outside into the theatre. A house of cards is a euphemism for an unstable structure, be it buildings or governments, but also a pedagogical toy created by Charles and Ray Eames. In the words of an advertisement for a similar modular building toy, “What can you build? Unlimited creativity. Basic building units. Super city.” house|cards was developed during a residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany from January to March and November to December 2015. 

Everyone is invited to the opening reception of house | cards on 7 April 2016, Thursday, at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby). The afternoon will begin with a talk by artists Mica Cabildo and Stephanie Choi at 4pm, and will culminate with the exhibit reception at 6pm. 

Gallery viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 6pm.
