From Purity to Perversion – July 12th

We are pleased to announce FRAGMENTA’s upcoming event:
“From Purity to Perversion” presents a kaleidoscopic and absurdist reconfiguration of the feminine. On invitation of FRAGMENTA, Charlie Cauchi playfully weaves together archival images, home-movie footage, personal and found artefacts,


memorabilia, textures and sounds to explore notions of femininity on the island of Malta. Expect edible delights and tipple from the nipple.

FRAGMENTA is open to all public and free of charge. FRAGMENTA is supported by Valletta 2018 – European Capital of Culture and free of charge.
