The UP Vargas Museum, in partnership with Aura Contemporary Art Foundation, presents "Displace, Embody" currently on view at the museum's 1/F and 3/F Galleries. The exhibition seeks to evoke discourse on how bodies, species, and spaces transform constraints in simultaneously urgent and playful ways. This project between the Philippines and Thailand acknowledges the issues brought about by prevailing boundaries and restrictions set on subjectivities. Prefixes prompt the probe of these conditions: “trans,” in the sense of location and direction, and “dis,” in the sense of resistance.
