Appreciating the CCP Artworks Part 2

And the continuation begins! Take note that some of the artworks here are similar to the few ones in part 1. Again, I want to say sorry for the incomplete credentials of the artworks under this post. It was a mistake to not list the names and artists of the masterpieces. I believe that having the credentials would help in adding more aesthetic value to the artworks listed here. Without further ado, let us appreciate more artworks!

An artwork from PROMDI || Ramsid Labe

I was amazed by how creative Ramsid Labe is. In this sculpture, he used normal ballpen cases that people would throw when it is deemed useless. The piece looked life-like to the point that it looked like it would move any minute to terminate us because we were annoying little kids in the museum! Truly, I can say that Mr. Labe did a great job in making a robotic mutant with normal pen cases. Kudos!

You Can Tell Me Now from myth || Jippy Pascua and Dennese Victoria

Myth was a refreshing exhibit because the artists combined unique artworks with deep meanings behind it. On that day, I found myself staring at the displays and I left myself to wonder about the beauty behind the artworks with in-depth meanings.

Indeed, visiting CCP was a beautiful experience. I was lost in admiring the hanged and displayed masterpieces. It was a magical day because I felt like I belonged with the artists who created the wonderful artworks. Another thing that excited me was that CCP provided us a pamphlet of information about the other museums that kids like us can visit when we have time. I saw ideal museums in the pamphlet and I would love to visit them all if I can!

Of course, I would like and love to visit CCP again someday and experience the burning passion that I have for visual arts.

Have you read the first part of this post? Here it is: Appreciating the CCP Artworks.

Appreciating the CCP Artworks

Before the first semester of AY 2016 – 2017 began, my two best friends and I went to the Cultural Center of the Philippines. For me, CCP has always been so flawless and I know that it will be like that forever until I reach the age of 120. When we came, there were less people, to my surprise! It was a dream come true because I hate crowded places (aka I hate people, just kidding!) or maybe, I liked it because it was something new. I have always visited crowded museums and CCP being less crowded on that day, made it refreshing and exciting! After traveling on the busy roads of Manila, we got on time! So we went inside and sought to appreciate the displayed works of art. The beauty of the masterpieces did not fail to mesmerize and amaze me. I’ll try my best to provide the names and artists of the artworks listed below. Also, my deepest apologies for not being able to have the credentials of the other artworks!

An artwork from PROMDI || Irma Lacorte

Irma Lacorte’s masterpiece was actually an interactive display. The artwork, I assumed, tasked us to create our own Anahaw balls, but alas! My companions and I failed to create a single ball. Instead of creating a beautiful  ball, I created a short braid out of three Anahaw strings to have a sense of fulfilment.

I am cringing right now because it would have been better if I provided the complete names and artists of the masterpieces (deeply mortified). This post will be continued in another post because continuing it in this post would make it long (my mouth and fingers are now filled with the word “post” after that sentence). Keep in touch!
