Alvarez and Pamintuan, who both call the province of Bulacan home, collaborate on a visual journal that seeks to chronicle their parallel childhood years. Here, AlvarezÕs photographs of her neighborhood are translated by Pamintuan in abstract forms; a way of considering what the latterÕs childhood might be like if the conditions were different and she didnÕt have to migrate to the United States. A sort of pacification is found among the images that the two artists present in the exhibition thriving on nostalgia and in looking back at something missed or lost.
Altro Mondo, Italian for Òother worldÓ, communicates the idea of the gallery as a space that transports artist and audience to another reality- the reality that art represents.
Since 2010, Altro Mondo has hosted solo and group exhibitions from Filipino and international artists that highlights its progressive role in the contemporary art community in the Philippines.
