In–Habit: Project Another Country

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan

Friday 01 August – Friday 03 October 2014

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan create remarkably imaginative installations that use the processes of collecting and collaboration to express ideas of migration, family and memory. Often working with local communities and conducting art-making workshops, the Aquilizans compose elaborate, formal installations reflecting individual experiences of dislocation and change.

Considering the idea of ‘place’, In-Habit: Project Another Country presents two separate, but interconnected works, that focus on engagement and interactivity with the local community, particularly with children.

Accompanying the interactive installation is a multi-channel video work focusing on the Badjao children, a minority group in the Philippines. The Aquilizan’s document of this marginalized community bound by poverty, show how these children manage to transform everyday complications and difficulties into creative energy.
