INDOORS – FROM WHERE I AM
November 11, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - December 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Living in such times amidst the pandemic has brought about exceptional hardship. ‘Social distancing’ was a term that no one would have imagined would become so worn out in our vocabulary. With people having to adapt to change, Valletta art gallery DESKO has given an extraordinary opportunity to sixteen artists to share their realities during this time, for a three-week long collective exhibition, from the 11th of November until the 2nd of December 2020. ‘INDOORS- FROM WHERE I AM’ was sparked from an open call put out on Facebook by the gallery curator during the lockdown period in Malta which began in March 2020. The call for artworks was intended to serve as an outlet for local artists, to inspire, and to rebuild hope that affairs will return back to normal, and that the arts will be revived once more. Eight months later, the selected artworks are set to be premiered to the public for what stands to be a reflective and surprising exhibition. Works from both established names and previously un-exhibited artists made the cut, creating an eclectic arrangement that hopes to broaden the local artistic community. This mixed-media exhibition that mimics the Salon-style hang will have its audience feeling nostalgic. Its interiors resemble a cosy household through the many adornments found within the setting, which makes us reminisce over moments of coming together that previously would have been taken for granted.
Participating artists: Ryan Falzon, Johanna Barthet, Daria Troitskaia, Jeni Caruana, Karen Caruana, Karl Fröman, Daniel Borg, Daniel Muscat, Julia Borg, Fabio Borg, Sabrina Debono, Jose’ Micallef, Justine Ellul, Illy M., Ian Kamilleri & Jade Zammit.
