The body is your resonance

Araceli Limcaco Dans’ Art Talk

 THE AFTERNOON of September 23, 2017 was a momentous occasion for emerging, likewise established, artists and art lovers of Davao city. It was a nostalgic affair through the eyes of a National Artist nominee Araceli Limcaco Dans, who practiced and taught art for decades. Moreover, it was an inspiring encounter especially for the Davao artists, as the group witnessed the relevance of art as one of the many reasons to celebrate the beauty of life.

 Along the span of her art talk, Cheloy (as she is fondly called by her friends) maintains, in her soft encouraging voice while looking at the eyes of the artists and the rest of the audience in the function hall, “the body is your resonance.” That the body is either signified as the person within the artist or the oeuvre (artwork), a discourse that manifests mutual understanding either on commonality or differences in life’s perspectives. Either of the two or both, trust and agreement is to be resonated. Indeed a relevant inspiration in the current artistic aspirations of Davao.

 And through her wisdom and lifelong artistic experience, the audience will certainly keep the experience and endeavor to share it with Davao and the rest of the world.
