Event Details

Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan – ‘PRINT SCREEN’ 

13 August – 4 September 2022 

ArtSpace @ HeluTrans, Singapore  

STPI presents three consecutive solo artistic presentations at their pop-up space, ArtSpace @ HeluTrans, under the umbrella of ‘PRINT SCREEN’. The first component of this pop-up will feature the print and paper works created through the artists’ residency with STPI. The second component is a screening room which will feature the artists’ films, or films that are related to their works. 

The first two editions will see the works of Isabel & Alfredo Aquilizan (b. Philippines, based in Australia) and Melati Suryodarmo (Indonesia). The last edition with the final artist will take place near the end of 2022. Through the STPI residency programme, STPI’s Creative Workshop collaborates extensively with international artists to create works in the mediums of print and paper. The residencies are a unique experience that push the boundaries of regional and international artists, resulting in the creation of significant works that further the artists’ practices over their careers.

With the Aquilizans, the artist duo translate elements of their evocative temporal installations into permanent material works. The humble cardboard material—symbolic of the balikbayan box, or “repatriate box” which overseas Filipinos use to send items back home—becomes a metaphor and a vessel for bittersweet expressions of love, a marker of presence and absence, and everyday histories that speak to human conditions of love and longing.
