Tangay- Tangan

Artists: Katti Sta. Ana and Manolo Sicat (with residents of Arboretum and the UP Academic Community)

Tangay (carried away) and Tangan (held in the hand) were the key words informing this project which hoped to occasion dialogue during a creative activity participated in by invested parties in the continuing tenuous negotiations over land involving the UP administration, the Quezon City local government, and in this particular case, residents of the Arboretum. As these negotiations delicately touched on such dire questions about tenure, human rights, and state funds shifting away from educational institutions, the process-oriented approach which physically yielded these mini precarious houses only underlines even more questions. Sta. Ana asks for instance: “Will the university ‘hold the hand ’of these communities? Or will it continue to deal with them at arms length?”
