About the Artist:

Ritty Tacsum (b.1990) is a Malta-based experimental photographer and multimedia artist with a predisposition for multi-layered stories and narratives. Her work taps into memory and makes abundant reference to context, time and place. Architecture features prominently in her work, as do moody surreal settings often dominated by masked anamorphic or androgynous figures. Ritty's work has already been the subject of three solo shows, with a fourth featuring an important international collaboration, in the pipeline. Her work has been featured in countless art and design publications and she has been exhibited in high calibre curated shows in Europe and Asia. Her work can be found in several international private collections. One of her latest projects involved creating an all-Valletta series of images coupled with site-specific commissions for a luxury boutique hotel based in the heart of the capital city. Ritty Tacsum is currently reading for a Bachelors of Arts in Digital Arts at the University of Malta. She is presently working on two solo exhibitions with international collaborators, one in autumn 2015 and one in September, 2016.
