Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità sig­nif­i­cantly aug­ments its Per­ma­nent Col­lec­tion

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità has sig­nif­i­cantly aug­mented its per­ma­nent col­lec­tion with the ad­di­tion of a large-scale mul­ti­me­dia in­stal­la­tion. Through the Val­letta In­ter­na­tional Vis­ual Arts Fes­ti­val (Viva), Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità has added the cen­tre-piece from the ex­hi­bi­tion The ‘Tao’ of Na­ture by Yang Zhiling, en­ti­tled To Carry Along Your Own Sun­shine, to the na­tional col­lec­tion.

Con­sist­ing of four hang­ing works mea­sur­ing ap­prox­i­mately 6 me­tres each in length, as well as a spe­cially cre­ated pro­jec­tion, this piece is the largest work of art in terms of size to en­ter the na­tional col­lec­tion through Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità. Yang Zhiling is the first in­de­pen­dent con­tem­po­rary artist from China to have a ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion as part of Viva. The ‘Tao’ of Na­ture ex­hi­bi­tion was pro­duced in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the China Cul­tural Cen­tre, Malta, and cu­rated by Liang Shuhan.

Since 2016, Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità has un­der­taken the task of ar­chiv­ing and cat­a­logu­ing its Per­ma­nent Col­lec­tion, which is cur­rently stored at St James Cava­lier. This project is set to be com­pleted in 2020 as part of the Fon­daz­zjoni Kreat­tiv­ità’s 20th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, when the col­lec­tion will be made ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic.

The ‘Tao’ of Na­ture, part of Viva, is open to the pub­lic un­til 20 May, in Space A, St James Cava­lier, Val­letta.
