Juxtaposed: a World at Large Series

QUBE Gallery opened their latest exhibit, Juxtaposed, featuring the paintings of Swiss architect, Sacha Cotture, and the photos of Italian-Venezuelan photographer, Jose Antonio Nigro. Qube’s World at Large Series is an exhibition category that celebrates international talents.

According to the curator’s notes, the idea behind the exhibit is to juxtapose or “place different things together in order to create an interesting effect or to show how they are the same or different.”

Cotture is “an architect who digs through the subconscious using emotion, impulse, and even coincidence to give birth to a product that is completely human, unique, and honest.” Nigro, on the other hand, “is a globetrotting photographer, an observer who tirelessly wanders across international borders, searching and then magnifying certain beauties in the planet.”

Cotture and Nigro, though, share something in common: both are “travelers” and visitors of the Philippines who eventually found the warmth of the country quite comforting, calling it home.

Juxtaposed opened last Sept. 10 at Qube Gallery, Crossroads, Banilad with the support of Bombay Sapphire, Martini Spumante, and Cebu Brewing Company, along with an event DJ. The exhibit runs until Sept. 29.
