On invitation of FRAGMENTA, Berlin-based German artists Sonya Schönberger and Christof Zwiener have chosen to investigate and have a critical look at the ferry terminal of Ċirkewwa, which is the only connection between the islands of Malta and Gozo.
The central hall of the waiting area has become the chosen location for the artists’ site-specific interventions. This space – situated between departure and arrival, and thus equipped with a certain tristesse – provides a place that activates a transition, but naturally also carries with it a functionality such as can be found all over the world. The artists’ works incorporate the functionality of the space in a critical way and present ephemeral work which picks out as its central theme the relationship between citizen and traveler.
As part of their 3-week residency in Għarb, Gozo (supported by Valletta 2018 Foundation), the interventions by Sonya Schönberger and Christof Zwiener will be presented in form of a FRAGMENTA event entitled Field Trip on Sunday, January 22nd, between 14.00 and 18.00.
