THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE
This art exhibition displays works which were conducted during two separate residencies abroad undertaken by Sara Pace at the Burren College of Art, Ireland and Xaxa Calleja at the Slade, London.
The work created during a residency is part of a soul-searching experience, where the artist immerses himself into the creative work without any other preoccupations or responsibilities. This allows one to focus and experiment without inhibition, aiming to find that zone of expression and interaction with like-minded individuals, as well as meeting new people, methods and artworks which may veer one’s artistic direction.
Therefore, once one has had this experience and placed such input into the creation of these works, it is only understandable that one would wish to exhibit the works, particularly in the artist’s own local environment.
The pieces which both Sara Pace and Xaxa Calleja will be exhibiting are works stemming from a natural source, imbued with mystical undertones and a moving energy. There are a variety of works in different media, comprising of paintings, drawings and photography, as well as videography exhibiting the artists’ development of work.
The exhibition will be held on the 19th February at 7.30pm at the Fortress Builders Fortifications Interpretation Centre in Valletta. For more information, visit the exhibition’s official Facebook page.
