The exhibition presents the work of three Art undergraduate students in their final year at the Faculty of Education at the University of Malta. The chosen theme – Frammenti / Fragments – reflects the differences between the artists themselves and their artistic work. If we observe ourselves and our surroundings, we soon realise that everything could be interpreted as made of many fragments which are combined together. Our emotional frameworks, personal and physical identities, our urban and natural surroundings, our social behaviour and relationship with contemporary technologies and networks: all of these fragments make up our complex lives in the twenty-first century. Individuals distinguish between one fragment and another and give priority to some of them. This theme has been dealt with throughout the history of art, literature and philosophy, and the three young artists have carried out research about these diverse fields that led each one of them to produce their own personal work, making use of a variety of media and technical processes.
