Collection of the artist
Imelda Cajipe-Endaya was born in 1949 in Manila.
Having won recognition first as a printmaker, she shifted
to painting in 1981 and now works hybrid media and
installations. She uses indigenous materials and folk-
symbolic elements to convey local texture and colors,
creating works that often allude to events and social
conditions such as militarization and feminism.

Imelda Cajipe Endaya shows Filipina: DH (1995)--an
installation with found objects, plaster, paper mache sculpture,
a tape player and slide projector. This piece features textured
domestic artifacts interspersed with momentos of family and
religious devotion, and was inspired by the Singapore
governments controversial and, many felt, unjust hanging
of Flor Contemplacion, a domestic worker from the Philippines,
for murder.
