We made sure to see Gabby Barredo’s exhibit Opera at Silverlens before it closed. Barredo’s work is always a blast, like fairy tales run amok. This show reminded us of cinematic nightmares. Like the giant with eyes on its hands in Pan’s Labyrinth.
This one could be a dentist’s chair from Marathon Man. Dr. Zell will see you now. Is it safe? Is it safe?
The arty serial killers on the Hannibal TV series would plotz over this.
The wallpaper has eyes.
The suspension tanks from Alien or the human batteries from The Matrix.
Dead Ringers: Gynecological instruments for mutants.
Opera is on view until Saturday, 21 February 2015 at Silverlens on Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati.
