Pokong Anading began as a painter, but has expanded his practice to video, photography, and process-oriented sculpture and installation. In 2006, he received the Ateneo Studio Residency Grant in Australia, and a Cultural Center of the Philippines 13 Artists Award. The Guggenheim acquired Anading’s Counter Acts (2004), a group portrait photograph in which the subjects hold mirrors up to the camera, reflecting a blinding constellation of light toward the viewer. Anading’s works were presented in the two-person exhibition Between Signs at Silverlens Gallery in Makati City (2011). Anading organized and participated in Room 307: Inkling, Gutfeel and Hunch at the National Art Gallery in Manila (2008). He has been included in notable group exhibitions including the Gwangju Biennial, South Korea (2002 and 2012).
