藝術家阿奎禮讚夫婦的知名「左翼計畫」作品,近日於新加坡拉薩爾藝術學院(Lasalle College of the Arts)中,展出於Mr. and Mrs. Chia與Mr. Yeap 的藏家展《雙屋: 當代藝術收藏中的政治和歷史》。 
此藏家展以探究公民生活的相關主題為出發,觸及社會正義、勞工政治、人權和民族意識。展覽將展出從1986年到2018年之間35位藝術家的40件個人作品以及共同創作,並於完整的圖錄中收錄了19位作者的文本。
  
在《雙屋》藏家展中,阿奎禮讚夫婦展出以手工鍛造鐮刀所構築而成的巨大翅膀,尖銳剛硬的鐮刀與本該是輕柔的羽翼形象形成強烈對比,利用米袋與翼狀雕塑所保持的危險平衡反映出菲律賓當代農業社會所面臨的複雜現實。
這個備受矚目的「左翼計畫」也已在今年來到台灣。從今年年初開始,路由藝術便與藝術家阿奎禮讚夫婦合作,使路由成為左翼計畫在台灣的大本營。透過四處募集台灣農民使用過的二手鐮刀,藝術家希望運用這些具有情感與記憶的當地物件,進一步反映台灣土地的現況與農民所面臨的困境,而路由藝術也在此實踐我們對於台灣社會和農業議題的關切。
  
Artist Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan’s art plan “The Left Wing Project” recently is show on the exhibition, “Two Houses: Politics and Histories in the Contemporary Art Collections of Mr. and Mrs. Chia and Mr. Yeap.” 
This exhibition explores themes of civic life—social justice, labour politics, human rights and nationhood—through 40 works or groups of works made by 35 artists between 1986 and 2018. A fully illustrated catalogue contains texts by 19 authors.
  
Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan display the gigantic bird wing made by hand-forged sickles, sharp sickles form a contrast to the soft wing, and the risk balance of the two reflect Philippines’ complex reality in modern agricultural society. 
This eye-catching exhibition“Two Houses”comes to Taiwan this year. Started from this early year, Nunu Fine Art had cooperated with artist Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan, and Nunu Fine Art became the base camp of The Left Wing Project.”By collecting the used secondhand sickles, the artists take these objects filled with emotions and local memories to reflect the current situations of the lands in Taiwan as well as the difficulties faced the Taiwanese farmers. Through such opportunity, we also seek to fulfill our obligation to our society, and reveal our concern towards our agricultural issues.
