Bettina Hutschek, October 2014
Maltese Confabulations is a multidisciplinary exhibition by Bettina Hutschek. This show highlights the artist’s oeuvre by bringing together works from recent years. It arranges them around several recurrent motifs and topoi, such as mythology, storytelling, history and archeology. There is also a strong presence of Maltese heritage or ancient civilisations, including the theory that Malta was Atlantis. Fragments of Maltese reality are interwoven in the various narrations, forming the basis for artistic storytelling and presenting a body of work that is to be understood simultaneously, not chronologically.
