The Cultural Center of the Philippines unveils Mebuyan’s Colony by visual artist Leeroy New at the CCP Front Lawn to celebrate this year’s Earth Day. The immersive outdoor installation fuses the artist’s fascination with science fiction and Philippine mythology, referencing Mebuyan, a goddess residing in the underworld in Bagobo mythology. It follows the theme, “Planet vs. Plastics,” with the use of organic and recycled materials representing a specific speculative future that intersects Filipino contemporary life, pre-colonial mythology, and environmentalism. Committed to protecting and preserving our environment, the CCP utilizes the power of arts to educate and advocate environmental initiatives.
