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.
