Art installation to be unveiled on Sunday
According to Silver MassKara Festival Organization festival director Eli Tajanlangit, a MassKara Festival 2019 art installation by RJ Lacson is set to be unveiled on Sunday, October 6, at the Bacolod City Government Center fountain area.
“It’s an anniversary-themed tableau presented as a zeitgeist of the moment in creativity and aesthetics inspired from 40 years of the MassKara Festival seen from the native of the city’s point of view,” the festival director said. “The idea came when I was given the challenge to come up with a ruby MassKara-themed fountain installation that would best showcase a celebration of history and today.”
According to Lacson, the installation is a series of statements that have defined the festival over the past 40 years.
“It will somehow give us a glimpse on how the festival, for the past 40 years, has showcased different artists and choreographers that gave the festival its sensibilities and uniqueness,” he added.
Last August, Tajanlangit previously said this year’s MassKara Festival was scheduled to kick off on September 8 in order to unveil a “major art installation,” which he described as “something like a memorial to the festival.”/WDJ
