an installation art by Nonon Yee and Mikiboy Pama.

To begin a cycle, an ending must be trailed with a beginning.

Prosisyon follows the alpha and omega of man’s spiritual corruption. Man, the demigod, becomes the spitting image of his deity.

The path to perversion commences inside the toilet bowl where organic wastes, primal instincts, and phallic obsessions are dispelled, divulged. What seemingly is a discreet act transforms into a flamboyant parade of carnalities leading to a deconsecrated altar. A colossal flat iron, the anticlimax of the vile cycle, hangs overhead as a testament of man’s alacrity to end the procession or to perpetuate the obscene.

Two Bacolod Artists to Hold Art Exhibit in Cebu


Nonon Yee and Mikiboy Pama will hold a two-man show entitled Anathema on Friday, December 11, 2009 at Handuraw Pizza along Gorordo Avenue, Lahug. Exhibit opens at 9 in the evening. There will be a performance art by Russ Ligtas and Leo Denorte, and a Hiligaynon poetry reading by Ayzee Alvarez.

Anathema is based on the artists' pop surrealist rendition of the modern societal mores. Cebu-based Yee collaborates with Bacolod-based Pama to showcase the Negrense pride in visual arts. Aside from Yee's graphite on board sketches and Pama's oil paintings, they will also stage an installation art entitled "Prusisyon".

Art Statement

When The Good and The Bad becomes a demarcation line between what is morally just or not, there are things that do not fall among the two territories. Many times, we are too timid to venture out among the gray areas. What more to set foot on the dark side. But unless we acknowledge the sordid aspects of our binary human nature, we will never become whole.

ANATHEMA exemplifies the things that are deemed too wayward in our prejudiced notions of the Ideal, of the Ethical. And because the sinister is depicted, ANATHEMA deviates from the orthodox conceptions of aesthetics. Art for the sake of beauty alone is a form of denial, an inability to realize one’s primordial fears. Thus, in this two-man show, moral and spiritual dilemmas are placed center stage to give light on the veracity of man’s dark possibilities.

ANATHEMA showcases figurative and representational artworks filled with occult images of the ethical taboos, moral decays, and profanities. Such eccentric views coupled with unconventional styles are proofs that this visual exhibit does not tread the path of mainstream Art.

ANATHEMA is pop surrealism in its purest element.

Dangerous. Disturbing. Visually palatable.

This is artistic radicalism.
