Manananggal (n): a folklore creature who can separate itself in half.
Tanggal (v): to remove. to take away.

Filipino mythmaking meets technology in Carlo Maghirang’s MA-NA-NANG-GAL, a sculpture series based on the Filipino folklore creature of the same name. It is a retelling of the popular myth through the artist’s personal lens of displacement and migration. Using a series of contemporary and digital fabrication processes—from photo manipulation/collage, generative AI, and 3D modeling, Maghirang reimagines the manananggal, not as terrifying monsters, but instead as a premonition of the future—a utopian vision of a lineage of people who are able to exist in two.
