Disgħa, a site specific art intervention across the Maltese islands. The work consists of verses from 9 different poems by 9 different Maltese authors engraved on different sites and rock formations across the islands, effectively creating a land constellation across the territory. The verses, all engraved using a purposely-created Maltese font, focus on the transient nature of the work itself and are a reaction to the current environmental situation and an attempt in blurring the lines between permanence, impermanence and memory. Most of the engravings perished or eroded in time, making the publication the only testimony of this art installation. The book produced in large format is designed by the artist himself, and may be considered as an extension of the project.
Text in the book is by Rosa Martinez, Alex Torpiano, and Immanuel Mifsud. Photography by Daniel Cilia.
