take me home – Part 1
March 25 - April 8
A three-part touring exhibition by iella destined for London and Australia will kick off in Malta at DESKO gallery in Valletta on the 25th of March! A two-week socially distanced show which will run until the 8th of April, ‘Take Me Home’ will be the first solo Illustration exhibition at DESKO.
This breakthrough debut show for UK-based Maltese illustrator Daniela Attard reflects on the process of leaving home, long-distance relationships, life in constant transit and the phases in-between. These personal experiences have been translated into complex drawings by the artist, reflecting on key lessons and experiences from the past few years. The drawings explore the themes of homesickness, nostalgia and the age old saga of trying to find one’s place in the world.
As well as the main body of work, gallery-goers will also get the chance to delve into the fascinating sketchbooks of the artist. The exhibition is free and open to the public, with the exciting opportunity to meet the artist throughout the duration of ‘Take Me Home’.
This project is supported by Arts Council Malta.
Opening Hours are:
Tuesday – Saturday 11:30am – 2pm & 4pm – 7pm
Sundays 12pm – 4pm
