There's a new exhibition opening at Malta Contemporary Art from British artist Douglas White, who's spent the last couple of weeks on the island constructing his show from objects found locally.
It's an approach White is known for - creating oddly beautiful sculpture from detritus as in the case of Icarus Palm 2006, or as poetic repositioning with his preserving of the imprint of a Tawny Owl colliding with an elderly couple’s patio door in Owl 2007.
The presence of the artistic act in White’s work is evident, with the resulting sculptures possessing a visceral beauty, at times shocking, and more often fascinating. This new show at Malta Contemporary Art, entitled "Masquerade", will represent White’s largest solo gallery installation.
The show opens on Friday the 7th August from 7.30pm onwards and will be available to view until the 28th of this month.
