Here are photos of another installation artwork at South Beach Development, part of the Singapore Biennale 2008. I like this artwork, not just for it’s sheeer size, but for the concept and the legwork behind it as well.
It is created by Filipino husband and wife team, Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan who now lives and works in Brisbane, Australia with their children.
Address (2007 – 2008) represents a developmental process spanning more than ten years since the first personal objects were collected “cubed” by Balikbayan boxes. These are boxes that many Filipino migrants use to transport their personal belongings home. The Aquilizans used these boxes as moulds to “cast” their own belongings as they moved from the Philippines to Australia, a room with a door but without ceiling.
