In the Filipino kitchen, vinegar is an omnipresent ingredient. But beyond its culinary value, it also serves as a medicinal and spiritual tool that has been essential to human survival, through sickness, revolution, strikes and displacement across cultures and borders. Nabanglo a lamisaan is an interactive installation inviting viewers to experience sukang ilocos, a sugarcane vinegar native to the northern Philippines and used widely in the Ilokano & Filipino communities in Hawai’i.
