Parting words, Nikolas Ventourakis

An intense month in Malta is over and I am on my way back to London. So much has happened in the four weeks that I spent in Valletta as the Blitz resident artist.
I met incredible people, learned a lot of a place I did not know much about and I am leaving behind only part of what I ended up experiencing here in the form of an exhibition titled “Rituals for our Safety”. I got much from this residency and I have a notebook full of ideas and sketches.
My next project, that I will start working on soon, will be expanded, and transformed and imbued with the narratives that I encountered in Malta. There is a lot of material to be tapped and I certainly look forward to be back in the future.
Thank you Alexandra, Nicole and Andrea for everything!
