Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan

Hometown: Philippines

Lives and Works: Brisbane, Australia

 

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizans’ collaborative activities evolved within the spheres of family and community, including personal relationships, and those they share with other artists. Their work consistently seeks to pin down the meaning of ‘home’ and ‘identity’ – both elusive notions prone to reinterpretation and personal subjectivity – albeit through ephemeral constructions that tend to leave no trace beyond the enduring memories of its experience. They continue to process these issues through materials and objects that are both abstract and referential, objects that serve as metaphors of everyday human life.

At STPI, the Aquilizans explored the ways in which the impermanence of their past projects could be captured and reimagined in a tangible series of works. In the recognition of the multiple sources they drew their artistic inspiration from, and the hands that their works have passed through by way of their interactive installations, they contend with the loose idea of authorship in the contemporary world of art and their personal sense of ownership over their richly diverse yet wholly experiential oeuvre. The artworks were collectively exhibited at Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan: Of Fragments and Impressions, STPI Gallery, Singapore (2017).

The artists have participated in a number of international biennales and exhibitions including the Sharjah Biennale, United Arab Emirates (2013), Asia Pacific Triennale, Australia (2009), Singapore Biennale (2008), Adelaide Biennale, Australia (2008), Biennale of Sydney (2006), the Third Echigo-Tsumari Triennale, Japan (2006), Gwangju Biennale, Korea (2004), La Biennale de Venezia, Italy (2003), and many others.
