Manananggal (n): a folktale creature who must separate itself in half in order to fly and seek prey
Tanggal (v): to remove. to take away

Carlo Maghirang’s MA-NA-NANG-GAL, a sculpture series based on the Filipino folklore creature of the same name, is a retelling of the myth through the lens of the artist’s history and personal mythology of immigration and displacement. Using a series of contemporary memory-keeping and fabrication processes—from photo manipulation/collage, generative AI, and 3D modeling, Maghirang reimagines the birth of manananggal, not as monstrous beings of terrifying intent, but instead as a premonition of the future—a vision of a lineage of people who must always exist in two.
