Mark Dawn Arcamo and Janelle Tang's Parallel Play at YSOBEL Art Gallery

In Parallel Play, Mark Dawn Arcamo and Janelle Tang, being more confident about each other's aesthetic decisions, allow themselves to be fully inspired by what is presented to them by their immediate environment--their four-year old daughter. In this exhibition, the artists engage in what childpyschologists would refer to as "parallel play," a common form of play wherein two toddlers can completely focus on the same activity without getting influenced by each other. For Arcamo and Tang, who had to work under the same roof most of the time, it is an effective creative process that they could maximize. It is the process that enables these domestic partners to get in touch with their imagined realities while they preserve the dinstinctiveness of their individual artistic identity.

By incorporating the natural creative development that their child goes through into their artistic production, art-making and parenting become highly compatible for Arcamo and Tang. Thus, Parallel Play effectively becomes a visual summation of their child-rearing responsbilities and creative exploration. Ultimately, their two-person exhibition is the conjunction of the multiple realities that Arcamo and Tang created in the process.

Parallel Play will be on view from November 28 – December 9, 2015 at YSOBEL Art Gallery, 2nd flr. Shops at Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
