Installing In-Habit: Project Another Country at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery

You might be forgiven for thinking that someone has a lot of time and cardboard on their hands when you visit In-Habit at Bathurst Regional Gallery. And you wouldn’t be wrong. Indeed many hours and a whole lot of boxes go into the installation of this mammoth touring project. In-Habit, like Rome, was not built in a day.

The cardboard walls of this metropolis are constructed entirely from recycled cardboard boxes, sticky tape, toothpicks, paper and glue — a project which has art climbing the walls from floor to ceiling in each of the gallery spaces in order to build this magical monstrous-city.

Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan: In-Habit: Project Another Country is a Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation commissioned project, toured by Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

In-Habit: Project Another Country

Tour dates: 2 August 2013 – 8 March 2015

Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation has partnered with Museums & Galleries NSW to tour In-Habit: Project Another Country. The unique, community-based contemporary art project will travel to six public galleries in regions across NSW, QLD and SA from 2013 – 2015.

Unlike static touring exhibitions of objects alone, the exhibition encourages and is reliant on audience engagement as an integral part of the artwork. The tour of In-Habit provides a rare and special opportunity for regional galleries and their communities to interact face-to-face with contemporary artists of this calibre and participate in the development of a pivotal art initiative.

The following six Australian venues have been confirmed:

  • Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery (Booragul, NSW) – 2 August to 8 September 2013
  • Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (Bathurst, NSW) – 31 January to 16 March 2014
  • Pinnacles Gallery (Townsville, QLD) – 5 April to 4 May 2014
  • Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia (Adelaide, SA)  – 1 August to 3 October 2014
  • Tweed River Art Gallery (Murwillumbah, NSW) – 17 October to 14 December 2014
  • Cairns Regional Gallery (Cairns, QLD) – 5 January to 8 March 2015

International Tour

Further to a visit by Hiromi Kurosawa, Senior Curator, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art to SCAF, Isabel and Alfredo Aqulizan were invited to exhibit In-Habit from 3 August 2013 – 10 November 2013 in Kanazawa.  In addition SCAF alumni artist, Fiona Tan has also been invited to exhibit alongside the Aquilizans.

SCAF is providing in-kind support for the In-Habit tour.
