DREAM [of] LAND

February 16 @ 9:00 am - April 21 @ 10:00 pm

Free

Welcome to the land of dreamers; ephemeral, evanescent, fading. To dream of land is to dream of abundance, fertility, resilience. To dream of land is to imagine alternative and multiple futures, is to reconsider our relationship with time, is to stay with the trouble.

DREAM [of] LAND is an interdisciplinary exhibition project combining narratives of identity, belonging, and home through the blurred overlap of art-making and craft. It brings together a body of collective work exploring the tangible manipulation of matter through acts of weaving, moulding and sculpting, not only of conventional materials but of narratives, memories and legacies. The exhibition seeks to question and redefine the significance of matter and materiality, by regarding it as an active agent with its own historicity and potentiality for dreams and change.

Our connection with the land is intricately intertwined with the stories it holds, forming a symbiotic relationship with time. DREAM [of] LAND therefore explores the question; can we rebuild our connection with the land by reimagining our relationship with time? The exhibition continually traverses the boundaries of past, present, and future, encouraging us to destabilise our gaze by inviting us to consider the edges in the middle, where we once were one.

In this dreamland, the imaginary and ideal are both entangled and juxtaposed, whilst boundaries and binaries are blurred. The knowledge bearers and mothers of inventions of the past become inspiration for the future.

DREAM [of] LAND is a Spazju Kreattiv Commission, supported by Arts Council Malta, Culture Moves Europe, Istituto Italiano di Cultura di La Valletta and Goethe Institute.
