Weight and Measurements

• Installation
'Weight and Measurements' is a performative installation work by Sydney based Artist Salote Tawale. Salote Tawale was born in Suva, Fiji Islands and grew up in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Cultural identity is a central focus in her work. The inherent conflict of being from a mixed heritage that simultaneously includes, and excludes, Tawale from a dominant post-colonial Australia - is a significant consideration in her arts practice. Intrinsically performative - employing photography, video, drawing, sculpture, installation and live actions Tawale re-forms and performs her identity and experience of a translocated Indigeneity, that is, removed from land and separated from traditional practices, and consequently repositioned within immigrant histories.

Our vision is to maintain an independent creative hub that sustains an innovative contemporary visual arts culture that engages not only locally but also nationally and internationally. We aim to provide a program that promotes excellence in the visual arts by activating our own studio community, by facilitating an interactive exhibition model and engaging with the community through artist lead workshops and public art projects. This year Fontanelle has launched a new gallery, studio & workshop space in the heart of Port Adelaide. With this new expansion Fontanelle Gallery and Studios is committed to growing our gallery and studio model previously situated in Bowden, (now Fontanelle Studios & Sister Gallery) by maintaining a creative hub at the historic Port Adelaide Post Office site.
