#ArtPH - PANIKLUHOD by Iggy Rodriguez

The Agitation of Faith

Testaments about faith often dwell on its discovery and the moments that led to its processual loss. For a believer, much of the toil is in strengthening and defending it— from himself, others, and the constant agitations from the world he inhabits. How does one not only rationalize the existence of faith but more importantly practice it to resolution and stamina? Is this what should be aspired for?

In Panikluhod, sharp and provocative works question the bounds of faith and devotion under the lens of crippling contemporary crisis. Raoul Ignacio “Iggy” Rodriguez taps into familiar iconography, rituals, and gestures we’ve seen him expertly wield before. The massive imprint of organized religion on different facets of everyday life is apparent; these complex entanglements have and continue to shape our past and present sociopolitical conditions. But much like any text or scripture, we are invited to read these works anew with the optimism that time brings wisdom and conviction.
