FRAGMENTA was founded in 2013 as a platform to present contemporary art or other events in public or semi-public spaces on the Maltese Islands. As project space without physical space, FRAGMENTA’s mission is to offer experiences in form of events, which happen in different locations or settings in and around Malta, lasting a maximum of 24 hours, offering the public and random passers-by an opportunity to engage with art and some of the relevant, complex issues of our time.

FRAGMENTA’s pop up event Imħabba bl-Addoċċ will feature Roxman Gatt, and will be taking place at Ta’ Qali car park (between Meridiana Wine yards and the racetrack in front of MFCC) on the 23rd of August, 7pm-midnight.

Roxman Gatt’s inspirations are cars and the fetishisation of objects and brands in a consumer capitalist society, epitomized in men’s love of cars: “I am aware that this car culture is popular in other countries, but I have always been fascinated by Maltese men and their obsession with their ‘Bejbi’ or ‘Angel’.” The event evolves around sexuality, gender and consumption, and consists of video works, sound, sculpture and a live performance.

The event consists of:
– screening of 1 video on big screen
– screening of 1 video in a private video cabin (for +18 only, limited access)
– sculpture by Roxman Gatt
– performance by Roxman, a performer (Ira Melkonyan) and a dancer (Chrysso) which will take place at 8pm.


Roxanne Gatt (b. 1989, Mosta, Malta), also known by the pseudonym Roxman Gatt, lives and works in London. The multidisciplinary artist’s work encompasses, text, painting, 3D, video, sound, photography, installation and performance. Roxman’s research explores sexuality, identity, women within popular culture contexts and consumption. Mundane aesthetics and the internet become both a tool and a trigger to produce work.  Roxman was awarded the Chris Garnham Prize (2015) as well as the Magnum Showcase Online Photography Award (2013). Recent exhibitions include: Homo Melitensis: An incomplete inventory in 19 Chapters, Malta Pavilion, Venice Biennale, Venice, IT, The Sacred 419, The Square Gallery, London, UK, Bloomberg New Contemporaries, ICA, London and Bluecoat Liverpool (2016).
