TEN MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES FROM FRINGE MANILA 2018
Located outside the Poblacion café/bar Commune, Ralph Eya’s “Common” works as a clever piece of disruption. It consists of a black-and-white photograph of five people standing in front of a concrete wall, but with mirrors in place of their faces. The installation invites us to consider how similar we are to all the other people who can just as easily occupy the same space. But where “Common” becomes really interesting is its choice of location; Poblacion is known for its small businesses and social spaces, but it’s also a red light district with an unfortunate history of human trafficking. Eya’s piece then seems to be a challenge to Poblacion itself.
