ħożż il-ħsejjes reflects on our fragile environment, on how we relate to our surroundings, and how a community can (re)invent its environment. Taking inspiration from the intrinsic relationship between the late Gabriel Caruana artistic practice focusing on clay as his favoured medium and the use of The Mill – Art, Culture and Crafts Centre, Birkirkara, the Creative Team has worked with two materials which relationship goes a long way – clay and wheat. The Team, composed of Raffaella Zammit, Elyse Tonna, Wen Chin Fu, Marvin Zammit and Andrea Pullicino, have developed this engaging project for all ages, with a particular focus on children and youths. ħożż il-ħsejjes is a tactile, aural, and visual experience that invites visitors to become participants by creating a collective and ever-changing musical and visual composition.
This project is a collaboration between the Gabriel Caruana Foundation (Malta), iii (Netherlands) and Mighty Box (Malta). This project is supported by Arts Council Malta – Malta Arts Fund, ŻiguŻajg Festival, @Spazju Kreattiv and i-Portunus
