The artist’s 4th solo exhibition explores patterns and information loops with an overly-indulgent use of different media. A combination of intentional and purposeless play turns paintings, furniture, interactive machines and even nucleic acid (e.g. DNA) into avenues for free association.

Some objects in the show are curious remnants from an experiment in translating a computer virus to a protein. Some works might never finish, such as the endless doodles of Ian Jaucian’s table-top drawing robot.

Ian Jaucian (b.1986) is a Filipino visual artist based in the Philippines. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Painting from the UP Diliman College of Fine Arts and has participated in a number of international residencies including the Akiyoshidai International Artist Village residency grant in Japan, where he studied robotics.

He draws much of his inspiration from science — exploring its relationship with visual art, which through the years have included paintings, sculpture, kinetic and interactive installations. As an electronics hobbyist, Jaucian also explores the value of electrical devices for artistic expression.

The show is curated by Antares Bartolome.
