Reliving 90s Pinoy horror through art
It may seem like “The Art of Dagim”, inspired by Joaquim Valdes’s Cinema One 2010 Originals entry “Dagim”, is keeping the Halloween theme to the core.
But the Halloween exhibit is more than just shock and awe. It’s an attempt to re-introduce horror pop culture to the Filipino youth.
Valdes and his cohort of fellow young artists showed off their art works at the Archaeology Wing, Powerplant Rockwell Mall from October 25 to 31.
Valdes said the exhibit was inspired by his Cinema One 2010 Originals entry “Dagim,” a horror punk film about two young brothers in a 90s barrio in search of their father. Along the way, the siblings meet tribesmen who are later revealed as cannibals.
