The Embassy of Mexico in the Philippines, the Museo De La Salle and the Marketing Communications Office invite you to the opening of ORIGINS by Miguel Milló on September 10, Wednesday, 2pm, at the Fe Sarmiento - Panlilio and Kalaw - Katigbak Galleries, Museo De La Salle, De La Salle University-Dasmarinas, Cavite, Philippines.

The exhibition, which will last until October 31, will feature 24 photographs capturing the images of Miguel Milló that creates sculpture, volume and color. They are rich and made with total freedom, that allows an expression full fledge of restlessness, the same ones that reveal his own gods and monsters.

“ORIGINS makes me reunite with the essences of mankind, with the intimate moment in which human nature converge in a deep dialog with the entrails of earth. It is in this creative freedom in which I am trapped as a spectator, I perceive the man of all times rediscovering himself in his surroundings as a complex being, filled with questions, capable of building an entire world of answers –made to his own necessities- magic emerges, eternity of our species reveals, life flows reinvented with clay and seeds, paint and color. Mysticism, deepness, disclosed in the look of the female bodies that observe and witness our own existence."

"The vision of Miguel Milló extends beyond the frame of his photographs. Carefully choosing female models for their distinctive features like thick lips, long necks, chiseled bone structure and expressive eyes. Their bodies become Milló's canvas where he spends countless hours applying layers of clay and pigment and then adding plants, branches, seeds and fruit as if the materials were a natural extension of their bodies. The artist is now exploring and revitalizing the mosaic medium, working along the famed Perdomo family that assisted the great masters of Mexican muralism, Diego Rivera, Orozco and Tamayo. While Mexico is known throughout the world for its folklore, Miguel Milló wants to present a contemporary vision of his homeland."
