Disclosure

An exhibition by Ritty Tacsum

Curated by Lisa Gwen

Disclosure is a visual arts project that emphasises community collaboration. Initiated by Ritty Tacsum, this project thrived on the active involvement of individuals who contributed their deepest thoughts and desires through an anonymous online platform.

Back in 2020, Ritty Tacsum established a safe and inclusive digital space where people could express their innermost confessions or desires. Throughout this period, the project collected over 200 anonymous submissions, which formed the foundation for Ritty’s work, culminating in the selection of 10-15 confessions that were transformed into final ‘tableaux’.

The success of Disclosure hinged on the active participation of the community. By sharing their personal stories and emotions, participants played a crucial role in the project’s process, implementation, and ultimate success. The collaborative effort between the artist and the community resulted in a powerful and moving collection of visual art pieces that reflect the collective consciousness.

RITTY TACSUM – ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Ritty Tacsum (b.1990) is a Malta-based experimental photographer and multimedia artist with a predisposition for multi-layered stories and narratives. Her work taps into memory and makes abundant reference to context, time and place. Architecture features prominently in her work, as do moody surreal settings often dominated by masked anamorphic or androgynous figures.

LISA GWEN CHETCUTI – CURATOR BIOGRAPHY

Lisa is a curator of words and an editor of spaces. Her work and projects are the outcomes of these often overlapping and interchangeable roles which deal with space and its distribution; with aesthetics and design; interpretation and experience. One focuses on words and type, the other on artworks and installations. Both create images and visuals; both deal with narratives.

Besides an innate passion related to all fields of visual art, Lisa loves playing ‘local tourist’. She explores sites and spaces, scrutinising the natural, the built and the other landscape, through a camera lens. She has an ever-increasing hunger to make and create, to utilise her written voice, visually. She is a feminist, an activist and an aesthete, with an incessant need to share, communicate, inspire and inform.

Lisa Gwen has a background in Art History and Cultural Management, together with a 17-year freelance career as independent writer and curator. She spent 9 years working in public cultural sector, and possesses an unwavering commitment to the Arts and Creative Industries.
