The Cultural Center of the Philippines is proud to present house | cards, an installation by Mica Cabildo and Stephanie Choi. The exhibition will run from April 7 to May 22, 2016 at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby) of the CCP.

In house | cards, Mica Cabildo contemplates the typhoon — a force familiar to inhabitants of the Philippines — from afar during her residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude. Stephanie Choi explores the possibilities offered by the unique features of the gallery space and takes into account its historical function as a space of passage from outside into the theater. A house of cards is a euphemism for an unstable structure, be it buildings or governments, but also a pedagogical toy created by Charles and Ray Eames. In the words of an advertisement for a similar modular building toy, “What can you build? Unlimited creativity. Basic building units. Super city.” house | cards was developed during a residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany from January to March and November to December 2015.

Everyone is invited to the opening reception of house | cards on April 7, 2016, Thursday, at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby). The afternoon will begin with a talk by artists Mica Cabildo and Stephanie Choi at 4:00 pm, and will culminate with the exhibit reception at 6:00 pm.
