BENEATH THE SURFACE, STRUCTURES AND SCRATCHES
Ged Merino
with support from Galleria Duemila
15 October to 23 November 2014
Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby)
Artist talk: 15 October, 4pm
Opening reception: 15 October, 6pm
The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents Beneath the Surface, Structures and Scratches, a solo exhibition by Ged Merino at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby), on view from 15 October to 23 November 2014. Relative to Filipino’s penchant for diligence, process is integral to Merino’s practice as he employs unconventional methods of image-making. His textile-based works are stitched prints sourced out by rubbing, hammering and scratching onto any surface with texture from among the scattered objects, walls, streets and pavements of his neighborhood in Sunnyside Queens, New York. For the artist, it is a way of collecting artifacts from people’s lives, a sort of archaeological expedition where he sought to record traces of living and thus preserving memories as links to the otherwise forgotten existences, however banal they may have been.

For more information, contact the CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division, Production and Exhibition Department at telephone numbers (632)832-1125 to 39 loc. 1504/1505, (632)832-3702, mobile (63920) 4700690, or email ccp.exhibits@gmail.com, or visit www.culturalcenter.gov.ph

Celeste Legaspi - Gaano Ko Ikaw Kamahal
14 plays

GAANO KO IKAW KAMAHAL
Nilikha ni Ernani Cuenco, Pambansang Alagad ng Sining sa Musika (1999)
Itinitik ni Levi Celerio, Pambansang Alagad ng Sining sa Musika at Panitikan (1997)
Inawit ni Celeste Legaspi

Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin
Magpakailanman

Ang pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo ay tunay
Nais ko sanang patunayan
Huwag ka nang mag-alinlangan
Ang pag-ibig ko’y hindi kukupas
Tulad din ng umaga
May pag-asang sumisikat

Koro:
Ang ating buha’y maikli
Aking hirang
Kung kaya’t kailangan ng pagsuyong wagas
Kailanman
Ang sumpa ko sa iyo’y asahan
Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin
Mapakailanman

(Ulitin ang koro)

English translation
HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU

You will be the only one I’ll love
Forever

My love for you is true
I would want to prove it
Don’t hesitate anymore
My love will never fade
It is like a morning
With hope rising.

Chorus
Our life is short
My dear
That’s why a pure affection is needed
Forever
My vow for you is expected
You will be the only one I’ll love
Forever

(Repeat the chorus)

National Artist’s Manor 
Carlos Francisco or Botong as most people know him is one of the greatest men in the art scene of the Philippines. He is known as being a modernist together with two other artists. According to a restorer named Helmuth Josef Zotter, “Francisco’s art is prime example of linear painting where lines and contours appear like cutouts.” Francisco was titled as the National Artist of the Philippines in Visual Arts in the 70’s. His great works include Blood Compact, First Mass at Limasawa, The Martyrdom of Rizal and many more. 
To honor his memories, his family put up a museum in front of their ancestral house located in the street of Doña Aurora where he once lived. Along the street, there are carved murals of the paintings and murals of the late Carlos “Botong” Francisco in every façade of every house.
