This exhibition seeks to feature dialogues between artists of different generations. The selection of works is put together in meaningful dialogues, each standing for a given narrative or facet. These works are in dialogue with interventions by contemporary artists in digital format to create an exhibition akin to an installation where all the elements converse and interact within one weave. By bridging the persona of the Maltese artist, oftentimes caught between memory and history, the project shall explore what is constant and what instead stands out as a difference within the memory landscape.The dialectic between past and present , paradoxically juxtaposed across media, shall strive to achieve a constellation inspired by Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas where polarities are exposed and inferences underpinned across time. When read together as one experience, the constellation of displays and objects shall strive to propose new readings of art histories connecting present and past.
