INSULAR is a photographic project that focuses on the everyday life and destiny of young men from the African diaspora, recently settled on the island of Malta. Offering a sensitive portrait of this new community, the weaving of portraits, landscapes and still lives sets a poetical narration that attempts to create a sense of belonging; the semblance of a home in the making between here and there.
Interested in how migration and mobility constantly reshape the visual imagination of place, the artist explores themes of identity, diaspora and cultural hybridation within the specific topography and temporality of the Maltese space, merging imaginaries and through her photography, elaborating the figure of a contemporary, black, political subject.
Insular is the result of Cédrine Scheidig’s 2021 Artist’s Residency stay with Spazju Kreattiv in collaboration with the Valletta Design Cluster and the Ministry for Gozo.
