Unknown Prescription: Meet the Artist Charles Balzan Exhibition Walkthrough

06 Apr 2024 at 11:00 am

As the current contemporary exhibition Unknown Prescription comes to an end (open until Sunday 14 April 2024), Il-Ħaġar Museum offers art lovers the opportunity to meet one of the three Maltese artists, Charles Balzan, who will walk them through his part in the exhibition.  Unknown Prescription: Meet the Artist Charles Balzan is scheduled for Saturday 6 April 2024 at 11:00 at the Museum.  

This is an occasion for the audience to have a more genuine encounter with the artist before the closure of this contemporary exhibition.  Balzan’s latest endeavour of blackening stones with soot and then printing onto them is reminiscent of destruction and loss but also of creativity and meaning.  The breaking up of the bodies into fragments placed strategically around the Museum cannot but invite the visitor to ponder the continuum extending between life and the possibility of an afterlife, with death as its fulcrum.

Entrance to the Museum is free.
