Delia was born in France, is deeply attached to her Maltese origins and has been living and working between Malta and Paris since 2016. In 1999, she completed her DNSEP degree at the Beaux-Arts de Rennes. Since 2000, she has worked as an artistic director and then functional project manager. Her artistic practice focuses on the creation of installations which combine photography, sculpture and writing. She is interested in exploring traces of the past, which, in turn, reflect into the present. Delia is also keen to investigate perception of spaces.

“The artists challenge varied aspects associated with the intensified transformative urbanisation processes currently ongoing in Malta”

Their current exhibition, titled How Do You Feel?, curated by Elyse Tonna, seeks to challenge and engage in the international debate of neo-liberal policies and urbanisation, drawing on local examples of economic, environmental and social concern.
