Huwag Mong Huyagin ang Punong Walang Bunga

A Coconut tree stands tall. It was once struck by lightning during the typhoon, setting its crown of leaves on fire. We can imagine a flow of electrical energy going through its trunk, down to the roots - but there was none of that. There probably was, but the tree stands there lifeless. It is believed that one can find an anting-anting at the very point on which the lightning strikes, it is called "Pangil ng Kidlat". Mythology says that it can only be discovered by its chosen bearer. The "Pangil ng Kidlat", a phantom creeping at night, presenting itself in the dream. These could all be true. But then again, it's just a story."

This would be Bascon's 4th solo exhibition set for September 24 to November 12, 2016 at Pablo. Opening reception on September 24, Saturday at 6pm. Pablo is located at C-11 South of Market, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig 1634

Zeus Bascon (b.1987) lives and works at Sta. Rosa, Laguna. He continues to explore various forms while dealing with the complexities of the self, charged with the abstracts of the folklore and the supernatural. He is part of  Ganggo, a collab project he founded with Tanya Villanueva, Kat Medina, and sisters Marija and Gail Vicente.  A member of Ilustrador ng Kabataan and the graphic design outfit Folk Superlative, Zeus was also a recipient of  the Koganecho Bazaar Residency program in Japan in 2014, and the Sampalataya Artists Summit residency program in 2009.  He's been part of notable exhibits held locally and abroad since 2006.
