JULY 2020





The UP Vargas Museum virtually presents Kwarantin, a new installation work by 2020 Gawad CCP Para sa Sining honoree (Visual Arts) and pioneering Filipino artist Junyee. The work will be part of the virtual tour with Form | Kata Proto-type to premiere on 16 July 2020, at 6 in the evening, via the Vargas Museum Facebook page.

Kwarantin is Junyee’s spare take on a timely issue that bears immense weight on people all over the world uncertain about a possible contagion. With the assistance of the Pitopito Art Group Cavite, Junyee constructs bamboo beds enclosed in tall, uneven rails and with black marks dispersed across the space. The beds are strewn on the museum lawn to index a state of unrest. The artist, believing in the endless possibilities brought about by bamboo as material, invites viewers to reflect on the limits set not only by the virus on everyday activity, but also by the tentative responses of governments towards the viral problem.
