Home/Land: Project Another Country
DatesFri 13 Dec 2019 - Sun 8 Mar 2020
Created from thousands of handmade houses using recycled cardboard boxes, Home/Land: Project Another Country is Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan's latest large-scale installation of imagined habitats. This project is part of an ongoing series of the exhibition, designed by the artists to work closely with local communities all around the world to initiate discussions around what 'home' means, and to share stories among one another while creating handmade structures to form the basis of the installation.
Over the past few months, Isabel and Alfredo have been leading assemblage workshops with our Casey community and initiating discussions around what 'home' means and 'belonging'. During these workshops, hundreds of small cardboard homes were created and have since been added to the major-installation.
Once the installation leaves our gallery, it will never be seen again, so make sure you pop in to see it.
