Prestorjha is a solo exhibition by Enrique Tabone featuring works of contemporary art on the theme of the female figure in prehistoric Malta and Gozo, from a feminist perspective.
Works in this series include objects made from the artist’s signature use of plexiglass, site-specific installations, as well as video art from an intimate performance, along with art prints, some of which are produced from the artist’s studies on the structures presented during this exhibition. Building on the artist’s recent work exhibited at Spazju Kreattiv’s Art+Feminism 2020, Prestorjha engages a feminist reimagining on the pre-historic art of the Maltese Islands.
This exhibition includes contributions by photographers Alex Attard and Jean Marc Zerafa, digital work by Solid Eye, along with texts by archaeologist Isabelle Vella Gregory and curator Toni Sant, which appear in a catalogue raisonné, published in limited edition by Kite Group. This catalogue also features a retrospective of the artist’s work since 2010, as exhibited in 2022 at the University of Malta’s Valletta Campus in collaboration with the Institute of Maltese Studies.
