ARTIST MUSICIAN VINTY LAVA HOLDS 1ST SOLO EXHIBIT AT THE CCP

September 28, 2016

PRESS RELEASE

The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is proud to present the first solo exhibition of artist and musician Vinty Lava. EntitledYellow Green Sound Town, Lava’s exhibition will have its opening reception on 7 October, Friday, 6pm at the CCP’s Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery).

In Yellow Green Sound Town, Vinty Lava’s fictive reimagining of plot characters is spawned from the repository of music used for his videos. He investigates the evocative power of sound to entwine locations with notes, seasons to rhythm, and people to the encompassing musical tone. His video installations simulate the fictional world he wants his viewers to immerse in. Inversely, some of the images he uses are amalgamations of the two-dimensional characters he introduces in his paintings. This allows him to retain the subliminal dimension of music and provides the audience with the participatory role of interpreting the images and sound independently.

Yellow Green Sound Town will be on view until 20 November 2016 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery). Artist Vinty Lava will also be giving an artist talk on 19 October, Wednesday, 4pm, at the CCP’s MKP Hall. Exhibit viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday,10am-6pm.
