A Labour of Love
Alisha Abate has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculptural and Spatial Practice) from Victorian College of the Arts. Her family migrated from Italy to Melbourne’s West in 1959 where they began working in local industries. Her sculptural practice explores how the living body inhabits space and the reciprocal relationship of how space is seen and constructed. She has produced shows as a part of Midsumma Festival and Melbourne Fringe, exhibited extensively in galleries around Melbourne and is the recipient of awards from West Space and Chapman & Bailey. Open access journal Inflexion published work from her residencies at Testing Grounds and Melbourne’s Living Museum of the West.
