Drawing from the sensorial glut of Manila, Frat of the Obese uncovers Manila’s palette and unpicks its imagery and events. The seriality in the works informs the excess present in the metropolis, establishing an uncertainty as to whether this exorbitance is the city gorging itself or the city’s waste.
