“The sun does not rise in the north” (2023) series

The Sun Does Not Rise in the North examines the complex diversity of personal and collective histories interconnected between the migrant and the diasporic experience in Europe. It is a continuous relational praxis that de Miranda depicts and deconstructs through counter-narratives of belonging, as well as on the (re)elaboration of memory in post-colonial discourses.

Malta’s first art biennale will be a visual festa, inspired by a process of formulating new narratives for the region, and a provocative rethink of global mindsets, emanating from the European continent’s deep south. Narratives that confront the horrendous stink of death by drowning; narratives that can defeat discourse fuelling fundamentalism and nationalism – a choral ‘hymn to the universe’, celebrating peace and harmony, defying war(s) with olive branches in hand, gleaned from the evergreen olive groves of the Mediterranean, blending with the sparkling whiteness of the seas that surround them: a provocative artistic initiative inviting a rethink of global mindsets about art and society, emanating from the deep south of the European continent.
Curated by Elisa Carollo, Emma Mattei together with artistic director Sofia Baldi Pighi and set designer Nigel Baldacchino.
