Brisbane is relatively small when positioned on the global city scale, but its status as a ‘world city’ has only been growing – and not without the help of its internationally-influenced art scene.

Next week spells the beginning of an exhibition at the QUT Art Gallery featuring acclaimed artistic duo and husband/wife team Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, originally of the Philippines.

Their body of work is something of a marvel, having already been on show at various art biennales (you can see what a biennale is here) and events outside of our sunny city.

Since basing themselves in Brisbane some seven years ago, their installations – which explore the concepts of family, migration, dislocation and belonging – have flourished and become a solid collection, which is exactly what Fragments: Another Country is focusing on.

The event will be rehashing many of the pair’s larger installations over the time they have worked together, providing somewhat of an insight into the process of their creations, which employ a variety of art mediums, predominantly 3D media and sculpture.
