In his long-awaited new exhibition, celebrated photographer Alex Attard creates alternative identities for historical, centuries-old documents that were severely damaged during the war, and which have since formed part of the Notarial Archives in Valletta.
These never seen before, mangled and distorted volumes have lain static, buried in boxes, out of sight, for decades – their reason for being, gone.
Now, Attard creates a parallel existence for these objects through his artistic expression, where history inspires art, and art commemorates history by restoring time, memory and purpose to it. This is your chance to see these documents as never before.
Parallel Existences, an art photography exhibition highlighting these never-seen-before, sculpture-like historical documents, will be on show at Valletta Contemporary in Valletta between 5 October and 2 November 2018.
The project is supported by Arts Council Malta – Malta Arts Fund, Project Support Grant. Entrance is free.
