For the Philippine-born and London-based artist Pio Abad, historical archives are a source of inspiration. In particular, Abad’s multimedia works re-interpret the significance of objects in telling and shaping collective memories. Over the past several years, he has constellated the impact of the dictatorial reign of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos on the Philippines. By examining their regime's remnants, Abad aims to reveal and explore historical gaps.
