SAVE POINT

Artist/Type of Exhibit : Mayi Peñaflorida, Tokwa Peñaflorida, JC Peñaflorida

Date : July 4

Time : 6:00 PM

Superpowers and enchanted weapons. High scores and power-ups. At a certain period in most games, save points mark points of return, rest, and rebirth–bookmarking a player and his character’s journey in the digital narrative.

In this special three-man show, Mayi, Tokwa, and JC Peñaflorida re-emerge in a save point of their own, going back to their shared experiences playing games in their old Play Station console. Growing up, the Penaflorida siblings would encourage and challenge their mother, Mayi, to play with them–sometimes even making her play an entire game for them if it gets too scary–and it has since been the artists’ favorite past time. More than just for enjoyment, games like Final Fantasy, Super Mario, Monster Rancher, Parasite Eve, and Bust a Groove have profoundly influenced the artists’ style and aesthetics. This is showcased in their Memories// triptych, where the artists’ differing styles are imprinted on a giant memory card panel: Tokwa’s Memories//LimitBreak, Mayi’s Memkries//Liberate, and JC’s Memories//Trance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In hindsight, Save Point emphasizes not just the return to a specific time but also recognizes and appreciates the significance of departures. ⠀
