20 October - 9 November 2013

At the time SLOT opened in 2003, Tony Twigg was in Manila. Having spoken about the project with artists there, upon leaving the Philippines Hermisanto handed Tony a tightly rolled wad of drawings to carry on the plane. It was the first project that fully realized the ethos of SLOT: to have a conversation with our neighbourhood outside the conventional constraints of freight and the kind of  exchange routes reliant on institutional endorsement.

For our tenth anniversary, Tony has revisited Hermi's piece.

Original 2004 installation of Hermisanto's "Firedancer"
