Isha Naguiat

b. 1994, Manila, Philippines
Lives and works in Manila, Philippines

Isha Naguiat graduated with honors from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts majoring in Painting. She often uses textile, embroidery and photo transfer to create works that revolve around time, space, memory or identity. Isha’s memories are the building blocks for her practice. It is this engagement with the hands, for instance in the photographic prints she alters with embroidery or the house-shaped lanterns she assembles, that further emphasizes her own meditative resolution of memories, a working-out or perhaps emptying out of these connections.

She has participated in several group exhibitions since 2011 and was an artist-in-resident at Takt Gallery in Berlin, Germany in 2017. In 2019, she exhibited her first solo shows with Vinyl on Vinyl (Makati, Philippines) called ‘Little Packages of Incomprehensible Things’ and ‘This used to be a house’ with Finale Art File (Makati, Philippines).
