Download the Cutaway - an installation program here
Cutaway is a three year project interdisciplinary arts project from 2011 to 2013, about the Waterside Workers Hall, an iconic, heritage listed building in Port Adelaide. Site-specific art works, made within and around Waterside by artists and community makers, will reveal and honour the extraordinary memories that inhabit the hall. Waterside, originally built by the Waterside Workers Federation in 1926 and Vitals’ home since 1992, has been central to Port Adelaide’s cultural life for eighty five years.
The Cutaway installation is our first public exhibition of work. Each artist is responding to the resonance of Waterside, working with community members, other artists and alone to make art works from song and sound, text, projection, sculpture, still image, film and live performance. It’s a beautiful, eclectic and unfinished exploration of the hall and the people who have occupied it.
Each Friday and Sunday, Live Cuts is a chance to see live elements of the installation, connect with the Cutaway project and make your own contribution to this celebration of Waterside Workers Hall.
