  With Oplan Noplan, Antipas Delotavo and  Jose Tence Ruiz mark a decade since their landmark shows,  Kalupkop and Paraisado, held at Pinto in 2004.  Oplan Noplan is, of course, sardonic code for the pervasive unraveling of structures in both social weave and philosophic logic, which, alongside the resurgence of fatal viruses like Ebola, reminds us that many societal negotiations are subject to re-assessment, if not downright decay, in less time than it takes an electronic gadget to enter its intrinsic default of planned obsolescence.

  
Oplan Noplan
is an alliterative catch phrase that could allude to any of the following: the substitution of a syllogistic order for myopic cult-bound fundamentalism, the political sclerosis of an impoverished captive consumer class, the blurring of the bounds of good faith and blind subservience, the specter of mediocrity contaminating all good intent with the steadiness of rust and mold, the premeditated subversion of many rules of common weal in favor of personal gain. Structures seem to exist only to break down, with only disinterested altruism capable of holding back the rot. Mediocrity, the sleazy cousin of gravity, stalks us all in our unguarded moments. Oplan Noplan is description, prescription and interrogation. In an epoch of bewildering choices, are the ones we make corrective or merely opportunistic. Is all transcendental thought inevitably sucked into a larger chaos? Are objective rules meant to be subjectively applied? Is rationality an exceptional but not prevalent state?
