Ioane Ioane, 'Fale sa'

Ioane Ioane’s 'Fale sa' is shown here at the Auckland City Art Gallery in 2002. The installation includes 500 carved cowrie shells and three wooden totems, shown with a watery audio-light scape. The work is about being rooted in a culture and family heritage, drawing strength and the ability to adapt from it.
