For this exhibition, Amos V. Manlangit, Dodd Ph.D. candidate in art education, invited several artists to collaborate on a series of new paintings in order to explore how markings on two sides of a transparent panel can create uncertainty through the muddling of images. Dual personas, whether one artist alternating sides or two collaborators in a dialogue, generate a conversation between visual elements to negotiate on a unified aesthetic. Characterized by tension and unpredictability that would lead to reciprocity and harmony, the resulting installation embodies a shared language built entirely on reflexivity and trust.

In-between invites the viewer to resist interpretation from the images that transpired. Inspired by pseudo-writings of the Asemic practice, the lines - whether resembling ornamental patterns, calligraphic marks, or written language - may find new agency in the imagery that organically formed in the artistic collaboration. If people choose to focus on the materiality of the motifs and allow them to exist as they are, it may lead to new trajectories where, instead of intending to be deciphered, the act of becoming may signify new possibilities for interaction through art.
