Salote Tawale: I remember you

245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh NSW 2042

Fridays and Sundays, 12pm to 5pm Friday 17 November to Sunday 28 January 2024

I remember you is an ambitious presentation of new work by Anglo-Australian and Fijian artist Salote Tawale. Conceived as a ‘memory bank’, the installation considers how identity is formed through memory.

Inside the gallery we encounter hanging faces, cut-out figures, and a partial replica of the artist’s Fijian family home – built on cinder blocks and clad with corrugated iron – complete with a clothesline out the back. At a distance pop music plays from a make-shift karaoke booth, inviting us to sing-along.

Made from memories, the work references Tawale’s personal experiences of growing up in Australia as part of the Pacific diaspora. Drawing on the material of life – her life – I remember you acknowledges the subjectivity of experience to explore the relationship between individual and collective identity.
