Charles Buenconsejo: Relative Nothing
An accompanying catalog of Charles Buenconsejo's solo exhibition at Ateneo Art Gallery from 22 July to 12 September 2015. Working exclusively with video, Buenconsejo spent six weeks at the Visual Arts Center of La Trobe University in Bendigo, Australia as a recipient of the Fernando Zobel Prize for Visual Art at the 2014 Ateneo Art Awards. In Bendigo, he filmed his every move—such as walking to and from his studio, entering the gallery— capturing footage of the self while eliminating any potential meaning it may have held, deconstructing the culture of the #selfie and in turn showing how the act of documentation can turn something into nothing.
