First, it was darkness, then there was light; a light that started with a huge explosion of sound and color. Iloilo-born artist Marlon Magbanua mulls over the origins of life in his Tenth Solo Exhibition entitled “Home” – showcasing ten visual compositions of the sounds that reverberate his very existence. Inspired by the theory of the Big Bang, Marlon creates a space for which thoughts of our humble beginnings are echoed. In this space, he calls “Home” sound is translated from a personal auditory experience to a more tangible and visual manifestation; a mirror, of sorts, that invites his viewers to relate with and contemplate. It is in this Home where we find comfort in knowing how and where we came to be.
“Home” is Marlon Magbanua’s Tenth Solo Exhibition and is accompanied by a Performance entitled “Home: In the Beginning” for his opening night.
