Mannet Villariba’s reply to our projects: What is performance art? and Timeline of performance art

Mannet Villariba, 2011-07-11

In general, Visual Performance (Performance Art) for me is a liberating form more than any other art platform that I've come across with. It has given me fairly new freedom to explore and investigate. It is change among other things that tends to move outward from itself leading to many directions. It's a whole new journey. A re-entry. In a different sort of way. Contained in the same sphere but of different category, of a different level than what has been a formula. Revolving in the same axis but with fresh new approach. A whole lot of new approach.

Timeline of performance art

Mannet Villariba did his first performance with Ronaldo Ruiz in June 2005, ('Ambient Soundbed' at the closing ceremony of "Refreshed" Ruiz's solo painting exhibit in the ArtCenter, 4th Floor, Megamall, Mandaluyong City, Philippines). His first solo act was on September 21st, 2005, ('Uncooperative and Unpredictable'), at the Philippine International Performance Art Festival (PIPAF) / "UGNAYAN '05" in Kuquada Gallery, Marikina Shoe Expo, Cubao, Quezon City (see black & white photo).


Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez: How did you transition into performance from traditional art production (2-D, 3-D), gallery-based work? What was your personal impetus for engaging in performance?

Mannet Villariba: As an inter-disciplinary artist, I find myself always drawn to a relentless interest in the live performance of visual imagery. This inner self-motivated leaning must have been linked to my toy-deprived childhood yet with that constant fascination with science-fiction, art and technology. Followed by this craving to go back publicly after a hiatus in the art-band scene in 2005.

E. L.-R.: For you personally, was/is the straddling between theater & other time/movement-based genre and visual art a conscious moving away from object-making?

M. V.: The migration from trad-art to time/movement based became a gradual phase for me. I have a very limited understanding at the time when I started collaborating in 2005 and doing my own solo visual performances. Until I chance upon the works of George Maciunas' Fluxus, reading on Beuys, Cage and eventually New Media based works by Dan Sandin and the more advanced works of Daito Manabe, and the likes.
