The forum on October 1 will feature awardees Alvin Zafra and Jeona Zoleta whose works center on the use of a variety of media to get their point across.

Alvin Zafra (b. 1978) graduated from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts with a major in Painting in 2000. Since then, he’s had seven solo exhibitions in Metro Manila including one in Finale Art File, where his work “Revolver” was presented in a documentary video which shows him grinding a .38 caliber pistol on a metal grinder creating a rhythmic performance to music. Zafra employs non-conventional materials such as human skulls, animal bones, bullets, fingernails and stone.

Jeona Zoleta (b. 1989, Manila) is known for her coming of age and loss of innocence works that are presented in fairly shocking pieces that are shown in a fearless and playful manner, forcing an individual to confront his or her undesirable traits. For the 13 Artists exhibition, Zoleta sought to engage a given space by installing kitschy plastic as a series of installation pieces, consisting again of the artist’s sordid banalities of piques of interests. The idea extends to an interpretation of concerns she has recently cradled, which delved into the relationship of the Internet and the marketplace.
