Progress by Kim Jerome Santiago
G13 Project Room is pleased to announce Progress, a solo exhibition by a Filipino artist, Kim Jerome Santiago.
In this exhibition, Kim presents his seven recent works that address his personal and artistic progress by portraying his loved ones and objects or possessions he owned. Kim is well-known for his adept and lifelike depiction of subjects – wrapped in a thin sheet of plastic. This wrapping-subject approach he employs in most of his works bears another layer of story, signifying memories that are meant to be captured or protected as the aides-mémoires for what he has become now.
Born in 1989 in Bulacan, Kim received his bachelor of fine arts at Bulacan State University, Philippines, majored in advertising. To date, he has involved in number of exhibitions locally and internationally, including in Singapore and Malaysia. Kim has also had five solo exhibitions since his involvement in the arts. Received several awards throughout the years, he was a top semifinalist in Metrobank Art & Design Excellence National Competition and nominated as the third place in the 42nd Shell National Students Art Competition.
Progress runs from 17th to 31st May 2021 at G13 Project Room.
