Buen CALUBAYAN Philippines , b. 1980

Buen Calubayan (b. 1980, Based in Manila) has been researching on the construction of world views in reference to one’s own position in it through landscape theory, biography work, museology and Steiner pedagogy among other approaches. His installations of paintings, diagrams, timelines, and archival works are attempts to map out the bigger picture and make sensible of what seems to be a difficult place to navigate—the unstable Philippine landscape.

He had exhibitions in Mind Set Art Center, Taipei (2020); Arario Gallery Ryse Hotel, Seoul (2019); Blanc Gallery, Quezon City (2018); HKW, Berlin (2017); Ateneo Art Gallery, Quezon City (2015); and La Trobe VAC, Bendigo, Australia (2014). His recent residencies include Acts of Life organized by NTU CCA Singapore and MCAD Manila, commissioned by the Goethe-Institut (2018-19); and NTU CCA Singapore (2017).
