View Guides

Markets, restaurants, breweries, bars, history – you’ll find it all in Fremantle. Known for its maritime history, the port city is also home to the Fremantle Prison, which housed convicts from the 1850s to 1991, and the Round House, an 1831 building which also briefly served as a jail. If you’re chasing a good feed, the cappuccino strip is home to numerous Italian restaurants, Mexican joints, and pubs, while the port hosts a brewery and multiple fish & chip shops. If you’re after some local handmade gifts & crafts, a trip to the Fremantle Markets is always great value.

Description

Towla is a multipage two-colour book printed by the artist that sets out the rules of Backgammon phonetically in both Arabic and Latin alphabet. The Arabic text spell the instructions in Latin and the Latin spell the instructions in Arabic. This instruction manual presents a dialogue about cross-cultural disconnection and translation, bound together with family history. Deanna suggests that differences between generations and peoples of different backgrounds and beliefs can be overcome by sitting down and talking to each other. The work also articulates the joys and challenges of growing up as a first generation Australian. Deanna co-wrote the translations with her late father Antonios El Hitti and her close friend Katarina Achkar. Object of the Game includes new work by Deanna, an interpretive animated video projection on how to play the game, narrated by the artist, and a public program involving Backgammon tuition and demonstrations.
