Glaiza De Castro Is No Ordinary Leading Lady

As one of this generation’s best actresses, she can rock any role she puts her mind to
Why does it seem like Glaiza de Castro has effortlessly deviated from the pervading stereotypes of show business?

The 30-year-old artist—notice how we didn’t use the labels “actress” or “singer” exclusively in describing her—has left an indelible mark in every entertainment pursuit she’s chosen, whether on screen (The Rich Man’s Daughter) or on the radio (“Sa ’Yo Pa Rin”). And recently, the projects she’s kept herself busy with (Contessa, Liway) have aligned with the decision to do things her own way, which in turn has allowed one of this generation’s most unique leading ladies to enjoy artistically fooling around with the performances she’s been handed.

Liu Bolin by Annie Leibovitz for Moncler

Moncler presents the brand’s Spring – Summer 2017 advertising campaign shot by renowned American photographer Annie Leibovitz with a form of communication which has again proven to be entirely unexpected and innovative.

Following the fairy-tale atmosphere and literary vision of the previous Moncler campaigns, the Spring/Summer 2017 imagery plays out along a surreal imaginary thread. The images are transformed into a chameleon-like camouflage which eliminates any certainty of reality. The protagonist is Chinese artist Liu Bolin, master of the impossible and the invisible, renowned for his allusive art in which only the silhouette of his body is visible against backdrops.

The exhibition marks Liu Bolin’s shift towards the virtual world, exploring this new territory artistically through Post-Internet Art. This new body of work consists of appropriations of classical Masterpieces — da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Picasso’s Guernica — juxtaposed with a photograph of the devastating impact of the Tianjin explosions. Using complicated and precise hand-painted camouflage, Liu Bolin painstakingly recreates these images with scores of human subjects as his canvas. Through various methods, Liu Bolin’s new photographs have replaced the three subjects on numerous websites, which were targeted with image-search results on Google and Baidu, thus realizing the Hacker project. Neon installations of the URLs exhibited throughout the gallery pound home the transitory and delicate nature of the internet.
