‘Bonds’ is the title of a versatile art exhibition featuring the works of two sisters, Lilyana Ger and Nadya Peovska. It involves an artistic miscellanea, comprising the use of different materials through a synthesis of different media, reflecting on notions such as identity, memory and relationships. The two artists are linking their different artistic practices, presenting a unique selection of experimental work which represents their perspectives on familial bonds and human interactions. The exhibition will showcase digital work, collages as well as mixed media. It will be hosted at the Malta Society of Arts’ Palazzo de La Salle, and will be curated by Roderick Camilleri.
Lilyana Ger is an emerging artist whose artistic practice gravitates towards the use of the digital medium. Her main artistic element is the manipulation of photography and digital collage. Ger’s former artwork presents ironic and playful underlying tones related to the objectification of the body, as presented in the mass media. Lilyana Ger developed her artistic formation in the Netherlands as well as in Malta. In 2019, she successfully completed a Fine Arts diploma at the Malta School of Art in Valletta.
Nadya Peovska is a versatile artist who explores various artistic practices. Her primary artistic medium is painting – characterised by a distinctive expressive chromatic timbre. Peovska has a particular talent for collage-making, fabric and textile artistic manipulation. Her creative oeuvre revolves around the inventive exploration and investigation of notions related to memories, vision and recollection. Her work has been exhibited in various prestigious shows and art events, both in Bulgaria and overseas. Peovska’s main artistic formation and specialisation is in Art Pedagogies and Fashion Design.
