THE STET-VIP  KABALIKAT TROPHY

    The Kabalikat Trophy is immediately beautiful and at once familiar, a delight to the eye and
    stimulus to the mind. Multi-awarded artist Junyee’s interpretation sculpted from a solid piece
    of molave wood measures 4” x 4” x 14”. A vision that is at once architectural and a jewel of a
    flower, it is reminiscent of the way tender young shoots sprout from a cluster of leaves.
    Depending on what angle the viewer situates herself and in the varying light of day, it may look
    like: the cross section of a star apple fruit, an unfurling orchid flower, a stiff glossy cycad frond,
    and in conformity with STET-VIP’s vision, the wingspan of a bird among a flock flying in a v-
    formation. One gets the feeling of the forces that press nature to evolution and extinction from
    the sculpture’s organic form and movement.


    This masterful symmetry is characteristic of Junyee’s art. He has represented the Philippines in
    some of the most significant art gatherings in the world, including the 7th Havana Biennial,
    where his collaboration with fellow Filipino Impy Pilapil “Closeness and Isolation” was given a
    space in the central exhibition. A juxtaposition of two life-sized images, in it a wooden man
    hangs from the ceiling, held by strands of natural fiber. Beneath him is a man of etched glass
    mounted on a bed of sand. The top figure is a Pintado, the tattooed Visayan native from the
    Pre-hispanic era, the bottom one, a man representing the computer age. The Kabalikat
    Trophy is likewise a celebration of how artifice is only an instant away from collapsing into a
    vast inner landscape that is unstoppably fertile, pulsating with life and hope. It is a fitting tribute
    to the STET-VIP educator / institution who has redefined the ancient Filipino concept of
    bayanihan by becoming a true kabalikat in this day and age. The Kabalikat Trophy is awarded
    to those who recognize how virtues can propel entire schools and communities to soar above
    the lethargy—spawned by complacent bureaucracies, inescapable poverties, and
    overwhelming disillusionments—that we can rise above only through a recognition of what
    unites us all. Indeed, the Kabalikat Trophy is an artist’s tribute to those who have succeeded in
    reclaiming some portion of the vast frontier that is the Filipino spirit.
