Reading Place: Trevor Borg PhD Exhibition

This exhibition comprises sculptures, photographs, film, and other documentation. The work responds to aspects of places in Malta, a small island in the Mediterranean Sea.

The context of the work has evolved from a consideration of selected places as potential sites for art practice. Deterritorialised matter constitutes place-stories; past and present find their intersection in matter. A number of strands emerge from the work primarily relating to territory/textuality/temporality. Evidently Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s notions of (re-) deterritorialisation are particularly significant. The work explores places, real and imaginary, and it allows for alternative readings of place.
