Lumayo Ka Sa Araw (Stay Away from the Sun) is a multi-disciplinary work by KKSILOG, interdisciplinary artist collaborative Kim Requesto and Kim Acebo Arteche, that explores themes of healing generational trauma from within their matriarchal lineages through (temporary) installation, photography, video projection, and dance. Informed by dance ritual movement in their respective trainings in Black vernacular dance (street dance), and Philippine folkloric dance, KKSILOG weaves together reflective dialogue between the experiences of their mothers and grandmothers with their present-day experiences of colonial beauty standards, colorism, self-worth, productivity, and internalized capitalism.
“Lumayo Ka Sa Araw” offers loving reflections on the healing process of witnessing their mothers' & grandmothers' traumas, and encouraging acceptance and self-love in their matriarchal lineages. KKSILOG hopes to plant seeds of transformation by normalizing upward generational healing--tending to and healing the soil that they grew from.

Lumayo Ka Sa Araw is KKSILOG’s first official collaboration. Process-driven through lenses of transformational generational healing, Requesto & Arteche work with both historic and family archives, including photographs, text messages, voicemails, and recorded dialogues with their mothers/grandmothers to understand and create reflections of these experiences of beauty standards, skin color, self-worth, productivity, and internalized capitalism.
