A moving image work in reaction to Oliver Messaien's Quartet for the End of Time as part of Modern Music Days, Saturday 11 February, 2017, Teatru Manoel, Valletta.
Small Amnesias is an attempt to rediscover beauty in the memory of the forgotten.
Through the clashing of contradicting values, the work successively challenges and exalts the central theological theme in Oliver Messaien's Quartet for the End of Time, that of religious devotion as the only hope in the tragedy of war, aspiring to unearth a further disquieting inner beauty.
 Text extracted from Beauty is the Mystery of Life by painter Agnes Martin, who explains that pure beauty can only be found when the artist is distanced from life and is devoted to an unhindered aesthetic abstraction.
 Philosopher Walter Benjamin’s concern with history and the articulation of its significance to the present can be traced from his early writings, through to one of his final works, “On the Concept of History” (1939-1940), where he imagined the artist (and also the critic and historian) as an interpreter of history, establishing a “unique experience with the past”.
