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.
