Wanda Acosta: WHAT REMAINS

Wanda Acosta

What Remains are images of billboard structures in the Asia.

Photographed predominately in the Philippines, these giant structures are usually clothed with advertising tarpaulins creating a visual cacophony of consumerism and capitalism.

In these images, they are stripped bare during typhoon season to prevent the frames from toppling over. These herculean forms are left vulnerable and exposed, standing in silence, the quiet before the storm. Visually erased, these skeletal structures now taken away from their usual function create a new language and minimalist landscape.

What remains explores memory and loss, when we are stripped away of our “skins”, stripped of our protective layers.
