Kaxxa Infernali: Explosions

“Kaxxa Infernali: Explosions” is a solo piece premiered in June 2021 at Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta. It unfolds a ‘sound’ landscape made out of voices, sounds, noise and histories (personal and national) connected to different types of explosions – military, ritualistic, artistic, criminal – from fireworks to bombs, on the Island of Malta.

This year Grima worked on the topic of explosions after discovering various stories that deserved further contemplation on the Island, one of the most bombarded places on Earth during World War II, with a turbulent political history in the 70’s and 80’s and more recently with a series of car-bombs and a number of incidents in firework factories, which brought numerous tragedies and deaths over the past century.

During the research and conversations, the artist  also drew upon his personal history: part of his family through three generations is engaged in the manufacturing of fireworks and has lived in the quiet village of Qrendi, a stone’s throw away from Filfla.

This project is a co-production with Spazju Kreattiv and the Rubberbodies Collective by Jimmy Grima and is partially  sponsored by the German-Maltese Circle and the Goethe Institute.

Recurring Event between the 8th and 13th June 2021 at Spazju  Kreattiv, Valletta.
