Seedlings – Exhibition by Gilbert Calleja, Jesmond Vassallo and Robert Zahra

27 July, 2023 | 9:00 am - 10 August, 2023 | 7:00 pm

The Glasshouse Project: Seedlings

In this collaborative exhibition Robert Zahra, Jesmond Vassallo and Gilbert Calleja explore creative production as a process through which the individual can reflect on lived experience. The artists push their individual practices to experiment with, and re-propose, mundane experiences through a selection of works in various media. Bold, speculative, and multi-layered, the works presented engage with image-making techniques and materials to bring attention to the multisensory qualities of experience and how the sensual (in)forms perception, memory and understanding of the world.

Through Seedlings, Longtime friends and artistic collaborators Robert Zahra, Jesmond Vassallo, Gilbert Calleja and Caldon Mercieca launch the first phase of a year-long collaboration titled The Glasshouse Project.

Seedlings, the exhibition of works by artists Robert Zahra, Jesmond Vassallo and Gilbert Calleja, under the curatorship of Caldon Mercieca, is the first event of a year-long collaboration titled The Glasshouse Project. Over the next 12 months, the project will present a reflection on the twenty-plus years of artistic collaboration between Zahra, Vassallo, Calleja and Mercieca.

Seedlings will feature around 50 tentative sketches, mixed-media experiments, drawings, and a few finished works. “As an exhibition, Seedlings was intended to bring to light the first stages of artistic production, as the three of us consciously transpose fragments of what we created in our studios in the past few months to a public space, in the hope of spurring a broader discussion and collective reflection,” explain the three artists.
