“Arrivals and Departures” frames the collaborative art practice of the Aquilizans in a time of isolation

‘One of the key pieces in this exhibition is Last Flight (2011). This particular piece is made from about a hundred used slippers collected from the shoreline of a small fishing village in Bagasbas, Camarines Norte. “One of the early community art projects we did is on this little fishing village, working with the fisherman and their families looking into alternative ways and a solution to resolve the problem and this is when the idea of creating an installation work using specifically this particular object which is the unpaired rubber slippers,” say the Aquilizans.’
