Originating from the Philippines, Ernielson Limbo uses personal family photographs in order to explore and challenge the representation influenced by normative values the mass population conform to. The Philippines is the 4th largest Catholic country in the world. Growing up in a strict Filipino household, experimentation with gender and sexuality was forbidden. Through this body of work, Limbo attempts to regain control and power over years of misguided and mistaken depiction of identity. Driven by own experiences and struggles, this piece elevates the sense of nostalgia which he challenges. Rebelliously going against the constraints of the rigid conservative culture he was brought up with. Limbo introduces a newly found identity and independence, playfully marking and changing the way he was once viewed.
