León Gallery International collaborates with Gagosian Gallery By A&M

León Gallery International is holding the first dedicated exhibition of works by visionary Korean artist Nam June Paik (1932-2006) in the Philippines from 22 October to 30 November 2018.
‘Nam June Paik in Manilaʼ is presented in collaboration with Gagosian Gallery, which has represented the artistʼs estate since 2015. It showcases 24 works made by Paik — widely regarded as a pioneer in video art — between 1983 to 2005. Highlights include ‘TV Buddhaʼ (1976), which shows a statue of a sitting Buddha looking at his own image on closed-circuit TV, ‘One Candleʼ (1989), a burning candle placed within a TV casing that is filmed by a video camera then projected onto the walls, and ‘Bakelite Robotʼ (2002), a human-like figure fashioned from vintage Bakelite radios.
Nam June Paik, ‘Bakelite Robotʼ, 2002, one-channel video installation with 4 14.2cm LCD monitors, 2 10.2cm LCD colour monitors, coloured electric lights, 92 x 92 x 19.7cm. Image courtesy of Gagosian Gallery. Speaking about the exhibition, Gallery Director Jaime Ponce de León revealed that it came about through conversations between Ken Hakuta, the executor of the late artistʼs estate and Magdalina Juntilla, Manager of León Gallery International.
He also noted that all the works in the exhibition are for sale, with prices available upon request, and indicated his optimism about the showʼs reception in the Philippine capital. “The thriving Manila art market is ripe for the showing of great international art,” says de León. “The intellectual curiosity is there, coupled with collectors who are increasingly willing to spend on international art.” Next year, a major retrospective is planned for the artist at the Tate Modern with San Francisco Museum. Titled ‘Nam June Paik: The Future is Nowʼ, it is slated to open in October 2019.

Fernando Amorsolo’s “Under the Mango Tree”, (Lot 19) which once belonged to the Conde de Peracamps, achieved a world record for an Amorsolo at P46,720,000, besting a previous international record by several millions. It is believed by Amorsolo’s daughter, Sylvia A. Lazo, to be the first of its kind of this lyrical theme, since it was created in 1931.
The very rare “At River’s Bend” by Lorenzo Guerrero (Lot 46), believed to be ca. 1868 or the year that he would travel down the Pasig to court his wife, fetched P17,520,000.
Roberto Chabet and his protegé Marciano Galang each scored benchmarks. Chabet’s “Blind Window” (1964) in the Texas School Book Depositary, from where Lee Harvey Oswald felled JFK, brought in P9,344,000. Marciano “Mars” Galang was one of the first 13 Artists to be named by Chabet in 1970 and his sparely elegant abstract “Morning Calm” (1979) established a record P2,102,400.
Florencio B. Concepcion’s masterful Abstract (2003) accomplished a world record of P2,336,000.
The Arnedo Table (1880s) attained a total P7,600,000.
Lastly, José Rizal’s Untitled Bas-Relief “The Filipino” (Ca. 1892-1896) reaped P17,500,000.
