What's On






2021 Adelaide//International - Taloi Havini: Tsomi wan-bel
Friday 26 February - Thursday 1 April

Taloi Havini’s video work Tsomi wan-bel (win-win situation) is a meditation on systems of justice, through the representation of a traditional mediation ceremony in Northern Bougainville, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.

Practiced across the Pacific, this customary approach to reconciliation and restorative justice brings victims and offenders together and is practiced alongside common law.

In Havini’s video installation audiences are invited to witness mediator, victim and offender as they move through the process, from admitting wrongdoing, to expressing regret and offering to make amends. Largely untranslated the work draws its meaning from the interplay of human expression and body language played out on the faces of its participants across three screens.





May: revisions, interventions, extensions 
Friday 30 April - Friday 28 May

Historically, the month of May has come to be connected with student protest, workers’ rights, and revolution. As a verb, may is used to express possibilities or seek permission. And, according to the European schema, May is springtime in the north and autumn in the south, seasons associated with transition.

During May in 2021, the SASA Gallery will become a creative laboratory in which a group of Bachelor of Contemporary Art students and staff will be invited to develop ways of working together and engaging in an exhibition of works-in-progress, as they evolve. The project will underscore duration, action and reflection in the creative process. What do revisions and interventions yield? What is the influence of parallel processes and objects on one another? 

Part studio, part exhibition, and part experiment in collaborative practice participants in May: revisions, interventions, extensions will decide for themselves the details, scope and mode of the project, but will be encouraged to continually revise their work through decision-making processes and the interventions and extensions of others.

SASA Gallery invites interested Bachelor of Contemporary Art students and academic staff to submit expressions of interest in participating in this dynamic arts lab at SASA Gallery scheduled to take place from 30 April to 28 May 2021.
