“Mlata” was formerly called Malet, later also Melita.
It is an island in the Mediterranean, situated somewhere
between Sicily and the African Coast.
Why is it called “Mlata”? And not for example Malta?
Or Al-Mat? Or Amtla? Or Ta-Mal? Or Atlam?
Or… Or … Or … Or….
This blog presents visual and sensory fragments and impressions of my life
in Malta, in a humorist, sometimes serious, sometimes dreamlike way.
Because sometimes you have to tell a fictitious story to get closer to the truth….
I am a visual artist living in Malta and Berlin.
Since 2010, I have been posting on Mlata, in a rather irregular rhythm.
