short description of work

On immersion into the murky fluidity of memory, the self induced apnoea initiates the searching shift for sites of memory, which may be contested or retained. The embryonic sites of memory, become a fluid stream of personal and collective experience. A ritual narrative organised within a circumscribed space.

ILMA Maltese word for ‘water’
