EVENT #: 68836
Kaida Contemporary presents Gaining Ground, a solo exhibition by Mark Arcamo, and Present Tense, a three-man group show by Nick Navarro, Oddin Sena, and Jone Sibugan.
In Mark Arcamo’s latest solo exhibition Gaining Ground, the artist gives life to the frustrations and disappointments of the last few months. He explores the human mind as it seeks to stay rooted in a reality that is riddled with uncertainties and pressures from all sides. More than a mere re-rendering of the present, the exhibition is also an exercise in character, as Arcamo draws on his own personal experiences to overcome these unprecedented stumbling blocks and focus instead on the hope of a better tomorrow.
In Present Tense, the artists draw up the tensions filling our days in the light of recent events and the ways they cope. Nick Navarro focuses on the breath, the way it is held, and kept track of. Oddin Sena seeks inspiration from experiences of taking on a different profession and its accompanying challenges. Jone Sibugan interprets the identity crisis one goes through in moments of uncertainty and confusion.
