Experiments with enough – Day 92

Victor Agius

Flurry of activity day. A late start, cat feeding and plant watering at Arch B, some city errands, a trip to Xrobb L-Ghagin close to Marsaxlokk (which was wonderful but also upsetting to see fish farms so close to the shore). Home for some food and then to Spazju Kreattiv for Victor Agius’s exhibition Consume and his curator’s talk about it. It’s always a pleasure to see Victor’s work and the process behind it but I would also have loved to see more of the backstory of the artworks, the fire, the work that got taken down after two days etc etc. I’m always intrigued by the story behind things and which ways can present that in the most accessible and communicative way. The day ended with a highly random festa experience in Valletta. Three band clubs playing, fireworks, a group of youngsters carrying a statue in the most casual of fashions, a soft-toy lion sitting happily in front of the statue of St Augustine, street decorations. Practically no spectators. The whole thing was surreal but also strangely intriguing.
