Clay is a material from the earth, closely linked with nature and the environment. The exhibition evokes in clay present-day human attitudes towards flora and fauna, and the earth in floral, animal, and human imagery and form, involving visual metaphor, satire, and analogy. Ceramic works here provide glimpses into how humans today and in recent history regard plants and animals. Then and now, ceramic works are testaments to the relationship between humans, plants and animals, characterized by wonder, fear, desire, joy, domination, and subjugation. Alongside the ceramics are images of the collector Jorge Vargas carrying out his duties as a government official in the field of agriculture, and the painting of Fernando Amorsolo on the practice of cockfighting in the Philipppines.

Devour runs until 1 December. The exhibition coincides with Paglulual: The International Ceramic Art Project 2017 of the UP College of Fine Arts.

An educator of the College of Fine Arts in the University of the Philippines Diliman, Katti Sta. Ana finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Major in Painting in 1991 and Master of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning in 2006 in the same university. She has a Master of Arts in Community Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010 through a Fulbright Scholarship. She was a grantee of the Thirteen Artists program of the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 2000. She has participated in local and international exhibitions since the late eighties. Her illustrations, print designs, and sculptures have been featured in numerous Philippine books and publications of non-government organizations, socio-civic groups, and publishing houses. As a community arts worker, she founded Firefly Brigade in 1999, a citizen’s action group working for clean air and socially equitable transportation.

28 February (Wed) 
2:30pm - Guided tour of the Living Architecture Exhibition 
3:00pm - FROM NATURE TO ARCHITECTURE: Gaudi's Sagrada Familia with Ar. Choie Funk

Free and open to the public, limited slots. Pre-register via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. 
The story of Gaudi's life speaks of the mystery of all exceptional talent with which every human being could be endowed. Coupling this notion with that particular era during which he was born, Gaudi's whole work was an expression of a period. The Basílica de la Sagrada Família, as with his other works, spans realities of the 19th century straight through the 21st, as we expect its completion in 2026.
