Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan: See/Through

Exhibition and Shows

7 Dec 2021 to 18 Dec 2021 Weekly Event

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan create large-scale artworks that engage with ideas of home, family, memory, sustainability, migration, and Australia–Asia relations. The husband and wife team create collaborative installations, where these notions can be processed and explored, utilising materials and objects that are embedded with cultural, historical, and social narratives.

In this newly commissioned installation, a focus on Filipino textile and fibre traditions expands on the Aquilizan’s existing practice. Emblematic of their collective and community-centred approach to making, the duo has collaborated with weavers from different parts of the Philippine archipelago to create a large-scale installation from intricate fibre work. The weavings include piña cloth made from the leaves of pineapple plants. Assembled together, the fabrics are layered with hand-embroidered symbolism evoking stories, connections and places and histories embodied within the translucent materials.
