Shared Residence


Shared Residencea collaborative art project initiated by Poklong Anading, examines the notion of public and private spaces and communal ownership—from the artists to its prospective borrowers. Adopting a system similar to borrowing a book from a library, members of the Ateneo de Manila Loyola Schools community are given the option to borrow an artwork to reside in their personal space for a two-week or fourteen-day period. This act of temporary ownership or possession introduces borrowers to collecting as a social practice which also comes with the responsibility of care and integrity.

The lives of these artworks will take in the next months are an integral part of the project. Documentation from borrowers will be compiled through digital media, tracing a work’s movements online, thus creating another platform of sharing.

Ateneo Art Gallery developed the mechanics of the project as an adjunct to the Ateneo Art Awards program. Artists initially invited to donate works specifically for this project are past awardees and/or recipients of residencies. We are grateful for their participation and interest in the project. The duration of Shared Residence is indefinite and we foresee a growing collection that the university can share.

If you are an AdMU employee or Loyola Schools student and are interested in borrowing an artwork from the project, please read the Borrower’s Application Form, Shared Residence – Mechanics and Guidelines and Shared Residence – Loan Agreement Template carefully. You may use #AAGSharedResidence for your posts about the project.

The following artworks donated by the artists to the Project are available for loan.
