That time of the year again when instagrammers around the world get together for #wwim . And the theme of this year is kindness. So for #WWIM15 , @nationalgalleryaus and @Legojacker are hosting an Instameet inspired by art and kindness.
I had difficulty to understand the connection between art & kindness before but after we walked through the gallery, seeing so many pieces of art in front of me, chatting with fellow instagrammers, I think I understand at last.
The art can entertain us. They magnify how we think and feel. They tell stories of our own and others' also help us imagine the 'other worlds'. I believe the art have the potential to strengthen our capacity for empathy, friendship, social bonds, and concern for others. What do you think?
Btw, this installation caught my eye. It's Isa Kahig, Isa Tuka (One Scratch, One Peck). *any Filipino friends please feel free to translate this for me*
This work metaphor for absurdity of warfare as the artist draws our attention to prolong series of civil conflicts that has marked the past four decades of Filipino history.
Thank you @nationalgalleryaus and @legojacker for having me today. It was so much fun.
