Manananggal (n): a folklore creature who can separate itself in half.
Tanggal (v): to remove. to take away.

Filipino mythmaking meets technology in Carlo Maghirang’s MA-NA-NANG-GAL, a sculpture series based on the Filipino folklore creature of the same name. It is a retelling of the popular myth through the artist’s personal lens of displacement and migration. Using a series of contemporary and digital fabrication processes—from photo manipulation/collage, generative AI, and 3D modeling, Maghirang reimagines the manananggal, not as terrifying monsters, but instead as a premonition of the future—a utopian vision of a lineage of people who are able to exist in two.

To access verbal description, audio recordings designed for guests who are blind or have low vision that describe the visual experience, that complement the installation, use this link. There are four files, including an introduction and one file describing each of the three figures.  Each file is between 2-4 minutes long, and incorporates both description and prompting questions for further exploration of the artistic design.  After the introduction, listen in any order.  Enjoy exploring MA-NA-NANG-GAL. Verbal description written and recorded by Laura Sloan, arts educator.
