‘Nocturnal Artefacts’ Filmed by Maria Ines Afonso
'Nocturnal Artefacts' is an investigation of beauty and an exploration of the idea of ruins, as has become a staple interest of the creative director. As with an earlier project created by the studio, much theoretical insight has been absorbed from Douglas Crimps' 'On the Museum's Ruins', a pivotal point of inspiration, where the author's critical understanding of postmodern tendencies within curatorial practices is the focal influence. The starting point of this particular collection is the Nibbia Chapel (the now destroyed Chapel of Bones) which was in Valletta, and which celebrated beauty within the funerary. The interior treatment of the architecture within the crypt of the chapel was overwhelming, in its integration of human remains to honour the sacred, and this was translated into a set of garments.
