Bio

Eric Zamuco’s (b. 1970, Manila, Philippines) body of work has been about filtering the ordinary and the unfamiliar. It has persisted to be about responding to objects, materials, and circumstance, in a particular time and place. Zamuco’s themes run the gamut from views about dislocation, identity, post-colonial narratives, spirituality, and geopolitics to the need for the reclamation of space. His works, which are of a diverse range of media, include sculpture, installation, photography, drawings, video, and performance, serve not only as social commentary but also as self-critique. The intention in transforming the commonplace is to pull the immaterial and possibly find knowledge for some kind of human order.

Zamuco was a recipient of the Thirteen Artists Award (2003), the Ateneo Art Award (2005), and holds an MFA in Sculpture (2009) from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He was an artist-in-residence at the Centre Intermondes, France in 2015. "Working on the Mountain" is Zamuco's 6th solo exhibition at Silverlens Gallery.
