艾佛雷多和伊莎貝爾.阿奎禮贊 Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan

Alfredo Juan Aquilizan is an artist of broad sympathies. He draws, paints, sculpts, mixes media, does assemblages, and initiates installation projects. His work heavily draws on memory of home and country. This memory is viewed as a process of recollection, of remembering details and artifacts of a living history of people, places, and encounters. In undertaking this kind of artistic process, he collaborates with the people around him and forges connections among them. In gathering letters, domestic items, mementoes, baby sweaters, toothbrushes, blankets, and photographs of young people for identification cards, he restores the ecology of art as a system of interaction, mutual critique of differences, and the possibilities of the convergence of communities.

He earned his fine arts degree from the Philippine Women’s University in 1986 and his master’s from the Polytechnic University in Norwich, England. He is currently pursuing his doctorate at the Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. Together with wife Isabel, he has exhibited at biennales/triennials like Venice, Sydney, and Singapore and has been commissioned by the Tate Liverpool among others. He taught at the Philippine High School for the Arts and the University of the Philippines at Los Baños.

Isabel Aquilizan is a teacher and artist of the performing arts. She is a director and actress. Her engagement with the process of performance and its inherent collaborative possibilities has led her to work with her husband in installations that cross gaps between media and distances. Her role as a mother of five children enables her to intervene in recreating the art of installation as home or habitat that is sustained by housekeeping, child rearing, nurturing, and the collecting of memories.

She completed her degree in Communication Arts at the Assumption in 1986 and taught at the Philippine High School for the Arts.

艾佛雷多.阿奎禮贊 是位涉足廣泛的藝術家,包括水彩、油畫、雕塑、複合媒材、物件組合,及裝置計畫。他的作品汲取了濃厚的故鄉回憶,這些回憶被視作一種回溯過往的過程,紀念過去人事物歷史的細節和物件。藉著這樣的創作方法,他結合了自己與眾人,並建立起相互連結的關係。在收集信件、國內的物品、便利貼、嬰兒毛衣、牙刷、毯子,和年輕人身分證照片的過程中,他重建了互動藝術的生態、對差異的批判、整合溝通的可能性。

1986年自菲律賓女子大學得到藝術學士,而後自英國理工大學獲得碩士學位,現於澳洲布里斯本格里菲斯大學攻讀博士。他與妻子曾參加許多雙年展/三年展,如威尼斯、雪梨,及新加坡,並被利物浦泰德美術館委託製作作品。他目前任教於菲律賓藝術中學和菲律賓大學(洛斯巴諾斯)。

伊莎貝爾.阿奎禮贊 身兼教師、表演藝術家、導演及演員。她過去參與表演的過程和其內在整合的潛在可能,帶領著她和她丈夫創作出跨越媒材和距離的裝置作品。身為五個孩子的母親,這一角色讓她能如處理被家事、小孩教養充滿的家務一般,介入裝置作品的再製。於1986年自益三倉大學取得傳播藝術學位,現於菲律賓藝術中學教授藝術課程。
