Throughout the Auberge d’Italie’s transformations and the transition of the space into the Malta National Community Art Museum, MUŻA went through several meticulous documentation phases with particular interest in the ongoing changes in the fabrication of the building. This documentation aided in the discovery of new layers and spaces within the Auberge’s finest nooks. Due to the Auberge d’Italie’s new purpose, that of an art museum, it was necessary to capture this conversion from more of an artistic perspective and so, a public call was issued. A number of photographers were selected to continue this journey with MUŻA-Heritage Malta’s team.
In ‘Uncovering Transition’, we can see representations of what these photographers experienced while working within the walls of the Auberge d’Italie which was being transformed into a space dedicated to inspiration and creativity.
Highlights from the exhibition
Fritz, born 1975 in Germany, moved to Malta in 2012 where he started to take photography more seriously. He is a self didact photographer and from his passion he made it to his profession. He would never call himself an artist but sees his photography as a craftmanship combined with a eye for the beauty. Fritz is specialised in landscape and real estate photography. Another passion of him is trekking and while he discovered Malta he always had his camera with him to capture the beautiful landscapes of our island. Fritz had a solo exhibition at the Palazzo de Piro in 2017. Prints from this exhibition can still be seen at the main entrance of Mater Dei Hospital and the restaurant of the Palazzo de Piro in Mdina. In 2018 he added aerial photography to his toolset and created one of the biggest portfolios of Maltese landscapes which can be seen on https://fritz.photography.
