Blitz is pleased to announce the opening of a solo show by internationally acclaimed artist Rossella Biscotti (Molfetta, 1978; lives in Brussels and Berlin). The exhibition portrays the artist’s practice with a selection of her key artworks along with a work in progress, her most ambitious to date, originally presented at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven (2016) and intended to be produced in Malta over the coming year.
Rossella Biscotti’s solo exhibition will mark a new beginning for Blitz, as it launches the 2019 season. From now on, Blitz will continue its pursuit of internationalisation and interdisciplinary dialogue by presenting a series of curated exhibitions of established international artists whose works have never been exhibited in Malta before – yet specifically resonate with Malta’s unique history, culture and social landscape.
Rossella Biscotti explores modern society reclaiming moments in our present or recent history which unveil the relation between individuals and the power structures that interfere with their identity and freedom. Every artwork is a context-specific project embedded in a different social reality, taking her practice to new territories she commits to through long-term collaborative research. In more than ten years of artistic practice, she has sourced expertise from a wide spectrum of disciplines including law, science, engineering and economics.
This new direction reflects Blitz’s dynamic and experimental identity, and its firm commitment to Malta’s artistic community at a crucial time when an accelerated development of the institutional ecosystem is encouraging a quest for greater international integration and dialogue. The show will be accompanied by a free illustrated publication with an essay by the curator, visuals from the exhibition and more insights about the artworks.
