Aidan Celeste & Manuela Zammit
The artists for Innovair artists@home have finalised their plans to intervene across local essential businesses in Valletta. They have designed a zine to document the process, as well as invented signs for the windows and stalls of ironmongers.
Join us on December 5th, 10:30 to 12:00 for a webinar and take part in the process with both Johannes Buch and Aidan Celeste.

Together, we will look into the objects of art which inspired the work, how to make your own, and how the artists engaged a local store as if it were a city in itself.

how to beset the stage: YOU ARE NEXT
Together with shopkeepers in Valletta, the artists Aidan Celeste and Johannes Buch engaged with locals by using their essential shops to collaborate and design a set of interventions for their windows, and stalls, along with signage. This work evolved into an ephemereal vr work for the 20s take two exhibition:
See the VR work here until 26th of April 2021:
What a contrast! As we turn the corner to embrace the new 20s, looking back at a previous era of jazz, parties and celebration, we dream about getting together, long for moments of community and we miss each other. Artz ID is launching its first official international exhibition to attempt to redefine the current status quo of isolation and distancing and look to the 1920s as a source of uplifting inspiration. The 1920s, also known as the ‘roaring twenties, was a decade marked by stark contrasts – the Great War had just ended, peace had returned, and with it prosperity – although another war would break out not too far ahead.
Fast forward to now, we are facing uncertain times and we are also unable to plan for the future, not knowing exactly what it holds. Yet we make the most out of the present moment.
Therefore, the works selected for this exhibition create a contrast between the now and the past though a virtual escape.
This is an International exhibition featuring 10 selected artists celebrating the promises and dreams of the new now through art.

The ’20s take 2 is in collaboration with Christine X Gallery and Art Paper. The Vr space is provided by the London based company Emperia.co.uk.
The exhibition is sponsored by I AM ltd, partially funded by Arts Council Malta through the Creative Industries Platform.
Screen Free Collaboration
In the times when physical distance is non-negotiable, can we get closer by intertwining our dreams? Can we travel in our sleep to places we are missing? Can we extend our perspectives by using a space of the dream to embody another person, a member of a different species or a plant?
