Leave your mark on this site-specific installation that invites community members to contribute their experiences of love, loss and longing to a collective collage along the pontoon.
Mal-Baħar / Conversations with the Sea is a site-specific installation along the San Ġorġ Breakwater Pontoon (located next to the Birżebbuġa Local Council) which aims to create a physical and experiential path along the pontoon through the positioning and the interaction with objects in the space. These objects recall familiar settings and foster a thought journey through the locality’s past, present and possible future events.
