Hold on to the air in your pockets / 

There is a boulder at rest just across the Mina tal-Foss, locals can identify the boulder with the great storm of 1982. A few more boulders stand in your path on the way to the grandharbour. They are also identified by great storms in our lifetime. This includes minor but historical gale force winds, such as the one which swept over the Bush-Gorbachev Summit in the year of 1989, as well as a viral hurricane, such as lovinmalta's rendition of Xemxija and fish sprouting out of its shoreline in March 2019. 

Ths narrative aims to investigate our relationship to a force majeure. Rather than stay passive and complicit with forces beyond our control, be it politics, climate or otherwise, the intention is to first, identify our place among others, such as your immediate community, and then go on to develop our personal reach with the making of an object of art as a catalyst.

The residency brings together the work of Johannes Buch and Aidan Celeste. They will use their skills in publication to revisit and curate a narrative with contributions from experts in  heritage and maritime, as well as collaborations with other artists. This research will be used to contextualise their personal interventions around the Grandharbour, and focus on its relationship to great storms. How do we deal with such a radical force of nature? How does it shape our values and engagement?

The project takes place under the guise of a reading room in the Residency Space at MUZA. It will be the main site for the artists to engage their immediate community, and invite them to contribute through workshops, events, as well to present the design of a new site-specific intervention. this includes a close collaboration with Clive Vella (Airwars, UK) and Rakel Vella (https://r4k.club/), as well as contributions by Joanne Causon Deguara (Geologist, University of Malta), among other experts from maritime and heritage.
