“Cagayan Garden (2017) takes inspiration from Alfredo Aquilizan’s personal history growing up in Cagayan and his and Isabel’s artistic concerns with displacement, change, memory and community. During their residency in Bataan, Isabel, Alfredo, and their children collected posts of antique Filipino houses that had been relocated to Bataan as part of the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar’s collection of heritage houses. Together with other materials they gathered from the workshops, the result is an exquisite zen inspired garden where one can contemplate the journeys that the houses, and the families who once lived inside them, underwent in order for the garden to come into existence.”
