For the upcoming FRAGMENTA event Maltese artist Aaron Bezzina will present new objects and a site-specific installation entitled Memento Mori: Hints Taken from Terror Management Theory. All presented works take their point of departure from Terror Management Theory (TMT), which claims that culture and art provide meaning in an insecure world by being a manifestation of concerns with our own mortality.
Aaron Bezzina (b. 1991) has earned a BA (Hons.) in Fine Art at the MCAST Institute of Art & Design in 2014 and has just completed an MFA in Digital Arts at the Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences, University of Malta. Bezzina has been exhibiting work both locally and overseas for the past four years, and in 2015 he has been awarded a residency by the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg. Although Bezzina’s works tend to incline towards the sculptural, he is also interested in other media which encourage meaning making and further associative actions.
The FRAGMENTA event shall be held at Għajn Tuffieħa Tower in Mellieħa between 14.00 and 18.00. As usual the exhibition is open to all public and free of charge.
FRAGMENTA is supported by Valletta 2018. This event is made possible through generous support from the Gaia Foundation Malta.
