EISA JOCSON WINS 2019 HUGO BOSS ASIA ART AWARD


Well-deserved!!!!!

Last week, i saw her 4-channel video, Corponomy, at the Rockbund Museum. The work speaks of how dance students graduating out of academies who have difficulty finding work get shunted into the service industry performing sexualised dance acts that are choreographed for the male gaze. I especially enjoyed the rehearsal scenes she incorporated from her personal archives. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 ⁣ “From pole to macho dancing to hostess work, Eisa investigates the labour and representations of the dancing body in the service industry. She is also concerned with identity and gender formation, as well as Filipino social mobility.“⁣
