Filipino artists Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, now based in Australia, are renowned for their collaborations with local communities to create works that express ideas of migration, family and memory. This catalogue is published on the occasion of the Aquilizans solo exhibition at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in Sydney. In this new commission the Aquilizans continue their project Another Country, which uses everyday items to construct intricate installations that reflect individual experiences of dislocation and change. In-Habit has a particular focus on the Badjoa, a nomadic sea community who live precariously on stilted homes on the edge of the ocean. During the course of the exhibition visitors add to the cardboard box scaffolding installed by the Aquilizans, creating an ephemeral work that draws attention to these marginalised and apprehensive people.
