ARTIST TALK by JOHANNA POETHIG –
“UNGKAT – SHELL GAMES”
Saturday, January 21, 2-3pm
In Tagalog Ungkat means to recall. Most Shell Games are a confidence trick, a conjuring; legitimacy is always in question. Informed and inspired by Poethig’s formative years in the Philippines identity, memory, perspective, views of empire, legitimacy and connection weave through this body of work.
