Nostalgia (Kapag Tumibok ang Puso)
Kiam Marcelo Junio
Created for Kokorokoko Presents: VIDEO GIRLS, a night of burlesque and performance celebrating the video girls of the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Held on August 8, 2012 at Defibrilator Performance Space, Chicago, IL.
The current 80’s nostalgia and 90’s revival movements in art, music, and fashion are centered on Western, particularly American culture. But this era did not happen in a bubble, and to some, 80’s and 90’s nostalgia mean something completely different.
This video art piece contains appropriated clips from momentous, political, and pop-cultural events from the Philippines, from 1985 - 1995.
