From the erection of the pre-historic Kordin Temples and the 13th century’s Battle of Malta to the Great Siege and relentless World War Two air raids, Malta’s iconic Grand Harbour has seen it all.

So, as it continues to serve the Maltese population to this very day, a couple of artists have come together to pay tribute to the Grand Harbour and look back at its relationship with some of the country’s biggest storms.

The project ‘Hold on to the air in your pockets’ will see talented artists Johannes Buch and Aidan Celeste take residency at the iconic MUZA Community Arts Museum.

The two will be using their skills in digital publication to revisit and curate a narrative with experts from heritage, maritime, and the arts.

Amongst other things, this unconventional project will seek to answer questions such as: ‘how do we deal with such a radical force of nature?’ and ‘how does it shape our values and engagement?’.

‘Hold on to the air in your pockets’ will be taking place under the guise of a reading room inside MUZA’s Residency Space but will also include collaboration on site and on the coastline.

The project’s output will include events, guest contributions, publications, and a new design for a site-specific intervention within the Auberge d’Italie’s walls.

Johannes and Aidan’s residency starts remotes and with private visits from today, 12th November, and will be open to the public for visits at any time from 9th December to 9th January.
