Katelia, born in 1975 in Brittany, France, is deeply attached to her Maltese origins and has been living and working between Malta and Paris since 2016. In 1999 she completed her DNSEP degree at the Beaux-Arts de Rennes. Her diploma project explores “The lack of landmarks in water”, and consists of large format digital montages. In 2000, she plunged into the internet bubble as artistic director and then functional project manager. In 2015, she finally decides to show her artistic projects. She creates installations combining photography, sculpture, and writing. Her work focuses on investigating our perception of the space and marine environment. She is also exploring the concept of how traces of the past reflect into the present.
