Isobel Francisco: Disposable Lives Exhibit
Piecing together human experiences that inevitably decay, disappear, or are rendered meaningless, Disposable Lives showcases the fifth solo exhibition of visual artist, Isobel Francisco at the ArtistSpace, Ayala Museum from July 17, 2018 to July 30, 2018!
Disposable Lives chronicles the artist’s visual sojourn as she stares into the void of existence where waste becomes the central point of the discussion. Building upon the central image of the garbage bag, which was introduced in her 2016 exhibition Sea of Fertility, she wonderfully executes a collection that captures her observations on human ruin.
While the duality of life and destruction reverberated through her previous exhibition, Francisco’s latest show is an affront to the age-old delusion of man as the center of the universe.
