 Can history be reintegrated into the commonplace? Norbert Francis Attard’s photographic manipulations are repositories of collective memory, local and international, that intentionally juxtapose diverse temporal happenings on singular planes of vision. Each piece forms part of a series, and is composed of multiples and repetitions that invoke a simultaneously familiar and unsettling feeling. Intertextuality shapes the image selection whilst respecting the individual significance of each piece. War, violence, exile, truth, narcissism and injustice are all subjects that occupy the digital screens on a daily basis. It is the manner in which Attard presents the material that interferes with the quotidian sequence of their circulation. History is made visible and as a result it becomes relevant; a postmodern language for a utopian future.
