Travelling through Malta, a woman is exposed to the island’s geologic and cultural specificity, while her unconscious visions delve more deeply into the strata where memory and history meet barely submerged narratives of displacement. Historical events are overlaid by individual and collective narratives of oppression and imaginaries of possible futures.
“Sublunary” is the product of a Valletta 2018/Spazju Kreattiv residency in March 2017 in Gharb, Gozo (Malta), additional support provided by a Roberto Cimetta Fund travel grant in July 2018 and Wagner College research funds in December 2018.
