From ChiChai's first solo show "Matapang at Walng Hiya // Brave and No Shame"
ABOUT MATAPANG AT WALANG HIYA // BRAVE AND NO SHAME
Dedicated to women -- especially my fellow pinays -- that's continuing on their journeys of unlearning that there is no shame in
standing up for ourselves
what we want
what we feel
and know is right.
This is to us
to us learning that all the above is an act of bravery
not things to shy away from.
This is also a love letter to my younger self.
For the girl that got called "matapang" in such frequent negative connotations,
she became tongue-tied
not knowing how to stand up for herself.
Bb girl Chi
Can't say I've mastered boundaries setting for us, but I can confidently say that we are learning to unravel more and more our tiny but might voice for the world to hear.
