Between November 13th 2015 and January 5th 2016 I will partecipate in the exhibition "Christianity, Spirituality and the Other", scheduled in Malta, at The Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale. The aim is to create a modern environment in which different works of art by artists from different cultural backgrounds are displayed together under the same topic.

It is a tradition, a language spoken by hands, passed down in the ceremonial fullness of bread. It transpires in the daily ritual of its uniqueness as a cardinal element of an island, and it tells of faces, of childhood flavors, the beginning of a tale overlapped by others whose syntax is long lost, yet whose primordial semantics live on.

Bread laid out on the bareness of cypress wood, on its veins revealed by the scored out gouges, not clamoring for attention because its presence is already spiritual union, already a prelude to a return to Ithaca. Sculpture, bread, tradition turn into an expressive medium in Benvenuto Saba’s hands, transcending the physical concept of island, conquering a “Mediterranean” space, where the course becomes the pretext to lionize a time in which personal memories may commingle with the emotional dynamics of every single seafarer who on each platter will cast the crumbs of his life’s experiences.
