Two Paradigms seeks to investigate what remains when the body is hollowed out, when what is human is rendered as a scaffolding of bones, or in the case of Alab and Raphael Pagarigan’s art, a structure of rods and wires, of mere curves and straight lines.

Exploring themes of faith and loneliness, the two artists present sculptures that reach out into the core of our beings, exhibiting the heat of emotions amidst the cold of copper and steel.

Both came from a family of artists. Alab Pagarigan is a young artist known for making life-size human sculptures derived from intricately knotted wires. Raphael Pagarigan has exhibited paintings of his interpretation of contemporary Philippine historical events.
