Over 200 intimate lith-print portraits of the different people who call Malta home have been making waves in the local arts scene for the last couple of months. Now, to close off their 2018 programme in style, Valletta's Blitz are pleased to present the highly anticipated exhibition of the book Wiċċna by Zvezdan Reljic.

The collection features portraits and literary essays regarding physiognomy and identity, showcasing people from difference backgrounds, ethnicities and generations. Each of these is accompanied by a caption taken from the individual’s answer to the question 'Where are you from?'

"A face is a flower in the solitude of things. A face listens to years, seasons, countless lives,"

– Raúl Zurita

The exhibition will take place between the 15th of November and the 13th of December. There will be readings and a meet the author event on Thursday the 29th of November at 7pm.
