Visual Pond Artspace, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to the visual arts. Based in Manila, Visual Pond aims to be a dynamic player in the Philippine contemporary art scene through projects that engage and promote local artists both here and abroad.

We at Visual Pond envision a contemporary art scene that is vibrant, open to experimentation and supported by the community. By taking initiatives and creating opportunities for Filipino artists, we work towards this realization for the visual arts locale.

Asides from Manila-based projects, we are also interested in regional and international exchanges on ideas, concepts and possible collaborations with definite end products.

Two Video Art Shows: Garish Barish & masarapmatulog

Two video art shows opened simultaneously 24 January at the Cubicle Art Gallery.

Garish Barish is a collection of video art projects by artists based in Norway, which deals with subjects that are halfway between memory and insanity. It is about displacement, and a space between reality and imagination. Collected by Filipino artist Jet Pascua, the participants come from Norway, Denmark, Spain, Portugal and Palestine.

Masarapmatulog , curated by Clarissa Chikiamco, is a solo video art exhibition of Andrei Salud. Salud's original pieces are marked by satire, brevity and element of play, incorporating toys, music and political/cultural figures.

The shows ran till 30 January 2008 and were organized by the non-profit initiative Visual Pond. The Cubicle Art Gallery is located at Stella Maris corner C. Raymundo, Maybunga, Pasig.
