MARLANDS is a communicative space for the participating institutions, artists, researchers and public of the Mediterranean with a special focus on the islands of the region. It is created for people to exchange their experiences, to motivate them to gain new knowledge, encourage them to conduct collective artistic work and recognise the uniqueness of the islands, as well as to spread this knowledge beyond the targeted area as these islands.
In his project, the artist visiting Malta, Edgar Sarin creates an image of antiquity following the common harmonious forms, rituals, anthropocentric conceptions and sustainable consumption of the resources that surround us. At the same time, Sarin aims to contemplate the current situation with regards to drinking water on the island of Malta. Making references to the importance of water sources on islands in general and the formation of a specific culture around its consumption: from legendarily beautiful amphorae to facilities for rainwater collection. His work Ba’al is a rainwater collector. It is composed of vernacular materials: handmade ceramics, corrugated iron and wood.
