Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan
5 – 26 June 2010
Dis-close: Project Another Country continues Brisbane-based artist-couple Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan’s investigation into the idea of time and memory, place and history, processes and transitions. This latest exhibition turns attention onto the physical site itself to reveal something of its past and history. With careful consideration and close examination, the artists respond sensitively to the space and its painted white walls.
The husband-and-wife team has been collaborating over the past ten years on projects based on their experiences as artists and as parents of five children currently living in Australia. Their inter-disciplinary, collaborative and communal art projects often employ everyday materials and found objects to express ideas of migration, family and identity.
Major exhibitions include: the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia, 2009; Logan Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia, 2008; Singapore Biennial, 2008; Adelaide Biennial, Australia, 2008; The Drawing Room, Manila, The Philippines, 2006; Biennale of Sydney, Australia, 2006; 50th Biennale of Venice, Italy, 2003. Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan are represented by Jan Manton Art.
