Dark Memories & Alaala Ng Martial Law

The act of remembering is an active choice; it is a voluntary one. But one cannot remember what one has not experienced in the past. For those who have lived through the 1970s and early 1980s, this tandem exhibition by Edgar Doctor and Rick Rocamora will prompt one to recall specific events or a series of incidents that marked the tumultuous period of martial law in the Philippines. For younger generations, these images are attestations or historical narratives of atrocities committed to individuals, families, and communities. They may be taken as implements or tools to aid us in organizing or reconstructing the past.
