TIES THAT BIND

Philippine Tatler Traveller - - Lifestyle News - www.am­bafrance-ph.org

To honour 70 years of diplo­matic ties be­tween France and the Philip­pines, the Al­liance Fran­cais de Manille mounted an ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing Ju­ve­nal Sanso's paint­ings en­ti­tled Tri­umph of the Spirit. A med­i­ta­tion on sev­eral texts cho­sen in re­la­tion to Sanso's early mas­ter­pieces, the ex­hi­bi­tion de­picted the post-war trauma that was the spring­board for the ac­claimed artist's cre­ative process. With its time­less mes­sage of hope and the strength of the hu­man spirit against ad­ver­sity, the show was a fit­ting metaphor for the fruit­ful re­la­tions be­tween both coun­tries.
