Not too long ago, we entered a recovery phase after years of living in a prolonged pandemic that puts a halt in our fast-paced lives. However, recently in December 2021, we witnessed yet another catastrophe due to the heavy rainstorm that triggered an unanticipated flash flood; trapping numbers of people from reaching their respective destinations. In the nick of time spanning only four days, many homes were left in a state of ruins and reduced to a distressing environment for the people to process in. The aftermath of the event left a bitter, sorrowful experience for everyone who was involved in it, including artists who reside in the affected area.

Carca Marba is assembled to showcase a series of works in which several of the artists who were affected by the flood disaster released their unsettled feelings through abstracted, observational skills, revealing their boundless understanding of the circumstance.

To abbreviate Carca Marba to its simple, quirky meaning is to do it injustice; one of the reasons why Carca Marba is titled like so is because of whatever issues that have arisen in the years during the pandemic until this recent tragedy has demonstrated unruly, hectic situations that could have been prevented if only one avails themselves to do so.

Artists are coping with uncertainties of their unknown future when their revenues once again bore the brunt of it. December 2021 marks the time for them to truly comprehend what was at stake; surviving not only because they had to, but to document a point in their lives that could be detrimental to reflect in the future.
