Artist: JM Balingit
Balingit comes from almost two-decades of professional experience in waste management and was inspired to take up one of the stables upon seeing how the artists had been challenged to remake these unlikely spaces to make personal and sensorial statements on social relationships woven into questions related to the physical environment. He takes the two terms in the title from artifacts found in dumpsites such as Payatas. Pagpag refers to food leftovers recovered and dusted, sometimes recooked then served to the families of scavenger families. Bolasi is a concatenation of the words bote, lata, and sibak.
