For the BAP Book Swap & Sale we'll be joined by artist @judyfreyasibayan for a 'Human Archive' performance.
A conceptual artist, Sibayan never had a studio. Instead she always has a study where she keeps her books and her archive. She has since donated most of her books to the university where she taught for thirty years, and for the most part, her practice involves art that largely does not enter the art market. Thus, there remains the question of what to do with her artworks, her self-archive and the rest of her books. Sibayan’s site-specific work Moving House, Unpacking a Life of Critical Art Making, an “installation art performance” at Calle Wright is a timely opportunity for her to perform the task of sorting and organizing these materials to see what needs to be kept, sold, given or thrown away.
Book Swap & Sale starts 2PM on August 31 at BAP Outpost! See you all at this free and open to the public event!
This event is in partnership with: @angsabinila.ph Books from Underground, @artbooksph, @isipkwago, and @bookpanes. Sponsored by @poisondoughnuts.
