Beyond What Drifts Us Apart – 2024


Beyond What Drifts Us Apart (BWDUA) is again the title of an art event curated by Elyse Tonna in the frame of the Mahalla Festival taking place at the Dwejra Tower in Gozo, Malta, 2024.

The multi-year research-based project attempts to uncover the less dominant narratives associated with the environments surrounding historic coastal towers and the consequent relationships between the impacted landscapes and non-human communities. In 2024, the project centres within and around the Dwejra Tower. Artists have been invited to develop reactionary works in response to the site and a curatorial framework which overlaps aspects related to ecological thinking, frontiers and post-fossil fuel narratives.

Beyond What Drifts Us Apart is a collaboration with the Istanbul-based organisation Diyalog and Unfinished Art Space in Malta, including site-specific artistic interventions, artists residencies and community-oriented activities.

Residency Dates
24 June – 24 July

Exhibition Dates
20 – 28 July

Beyond What Drifts Us Apart is part of the MagiC Carpets Platform, co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe program. The MagiC Carpets Platform brings together 21 European cultural organisations, coordinated by Kaunas Biennial in Lithuania, offering opportunities for emerging artists to explore little-known areas and to create – together with local communities – new works that bring to light regional particularities and traditions.
