“Reclusion perpetua,” or “permanent imprisonment,” is a crime sentence similar to life imprisonment. It is used in the Philippines. A person sentenced to reclusion perpetua must serve a jail term of at least 30 years and face additional penalties.
This coming June 17, 2016, the Reclusion Perpetua Art Exhibit will take place. Several artists from Manila, Nueva Ecija, Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo and Japan will participate in the exhibit that will be held at the House of Frida, 2nd Floor of Cafe Bob’s 21st Lacson Street Bacolod City.
About the Concept
“The concept of this exhibition plays around with the idea that we are eternally trapped in a prison cell of space and time. This is an homage to our moments of suffering, stagnation, hopelessness and suffocation. Reclusion Perpetua is an assessment of human limits, the farthest we can reach in our own isolated sanity.” (source)
