Transforming spaces

Closely aligned to the act of crossing borders, works on “transforming spaces” imagine and examine the ways in which Filipinos change the environments they inhabit in the course of global migration. Moving through legal and illegal channels, Filipinos’ presence in the receiving countries upends existing conventions and narratives of citizenship and nationality. As “illegal” immigrants, they challenge the notion that the state’s sovereignty is total and absolute; as legal entrants—and potentially new citizens—Filipinos reveal the lie of the nation as an homogeneous entity.


Whether or not they formally become members of the state or community, Filipinos inevitably transform the spaces they occupy and those they leave behind: from the “new” products that grocery stores carry to accommodate their needs to the money transfer businesses for remitting wages to family in the Philippines, from their “invisibility” in hospitals and nursing homes to their visibility on streets and playgrounds.

Lordy Rodriguez was born in the Philippines, raised in Louisiana and Texas, and currently lives in Hayward, California. He obtained his B.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York and his M.F.A. from Stanford University. For several years he has been working on a series of ink drawings that reinterpret the United States of America as delineated by geographic, civic and state boundaries. These handmade maps, drawn in fine Technicolor detail, represent his take on the ideal reconfiguration of our [U.S.] country. His recent exhibitions include "The Map is Not the Territory" at the Hosfelt gallery New York, New York (2011); “Surface Depths” at Nevada Art Museum (2009); “States of America” at the Austin Museum of Art (2009); “Optimism in the Age of Global War” at the 10th Annual Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul, Turkey (2007); “The California Biennial” at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California (2006); “Perspectives,” as part of “25: A Quarter Century of New Art” at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, Texas (2004); and “Dessins et des autres” at Galerie Anne de Villepoix in Paris, France (2004).

Thea is also a visiting faculty member at the San Francisco Art Institute, where she teaches courses in Critical Studies, Art History, and Humanities.

  • See All Works

Wawi Navarroza is a photographer/multi-disciplinary artist from Manila, Philippines. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from De La Salle University, Manila and attended continuing education at the International Center of Photography, New York. Recently, Navarroza completed her scholarship at the Istituto Europeo di Design, Madrid under the program European Master of Fine Art Photography.

Her work with contemporary photography has taken shape in highly-stylized symbolic mise-en-scène and tableau vivants, shifting to her more recent interest in landscape, constructed still life, and installation. Her landscape photographs propose a familiar 'other place' that opens up to fabricated emotional space that seems to be carved out by both personal and collective memory and amnesia.

Navarroza has exhibited widely in the Philippines and internationally. She has participated at the 2012 Tokyo Month of Photography, presented by Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; the Asian Art Biennale, in Taichung, Taiwan (2011); the annual touring exhibition "CUT: New Photography from South East Asia," by Valentine Willie Fine Art (VWFA) Kuala Lumpur; ASEAN-Korea’s "Emerging Wave" Asian Contemporary Photography Exhibition in Seoul, Korea (2010); and "Verso Manila: contemporary art from the Philippines" in Turin, Italy (2009). She has also been shown at Angkor Photography Festival Cambodia, Noorderlicht Photography Festival Holland, and PhotoIreland.

Recent solo exhibits include "ULTRAMAR, Pt.1: Gathered Throng, Falling Into Place" (2012) and "Dominion" (2011), at Silverlens Gallery, Manila, and "On Landscapes and Some Dislocations" at Galería Patrick Domken, Cadaqués, Spain. She has received a number of awards, such as the Cultural Center of the Philippines' Thirteen Artists Awards Triennial (2012), Lumi Photographic Art Awards, Helsinki (2011), and she was a finalist for the prestigious Sovereign Asian Art Prize (2011) and Singapore Museum Signature Art Prize (2011). Other awards include International Photography Awards (2010), Portfolio Preis (2010, Germany), and Prix de la Photographie Paris (2009). She has staged two award-winning solo exhibitions: “POLYSACCHARIDE: The Dollhouse Drama” (2005) and “SATURNINE: A Collection of Portraits, Creatures, Glass, and Shadow” (2007), which was cited Winner at the Ateneo Art Awards 2007, Philippines. In 2009, Navarroza was awarded the first Asian Cultural Council-Silverlens Fellowship Grant to further her research and practice in New York City.

Her work has been shown in institutions such as the National Museum of the Philippines, Metropolitan Museum of Manila, Mongolian National Modern Art Gallery, Hangaram Museum, Korea, National Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan, and Fries Museum of Contemporary Art, Netherlands.

Navarroza has also worked as a lecturer of photography at De La Salle University and as an independent curator. She also sings for a post-punk rock band called The Late Isabel. In the past few years she has based herself in Madrid, Barcelona and Cadaqués, Spain. Currently, Navarroza is working and living in Manila, Philippines.
