Finding your space
where it begins
The first-ever interactive virtual photo exhibition of photographer and artist Grace Tagum Orbon-Emmelot, meeting audiences where they are today—online.
The featured series is a reflection of her visual narratives and distinct flavours as an artist through her lens.
A collection of how she sees the world, and the way by which she connects and disconnects the pieces of her thoughts.
On display at the Philippine Embassy in Oslo, Norway,
29 October 2021 - February 2022
A collection of Grace Emmelot’s photographic work in her motherland, the Philippines, and other places all over the world. It is the story of life at large, peoples, cultures, and her art.
This exhibition has a twofold objective: To showcase Grace Emmelot works as an artist and professional photographer here in Norway, and to relate to the immense courage of immigrants who have moved across the globe. Most, if not all of these people, still have half their hearts and souls in their native Philippines, and half in the place where they now live.
Half Circles is a migration journey of sorts, complex and nuanced, with the excitement of arriving in your new homeland and the loneliness of being apart from what you left behind.
Half Circles. Finding half of your own space.
