Jo Tabone is a Maltese interdisciplinary artist exploring concepts of Intimacy, Body and the Stare. She studied Art for the Community BA (hons) in Roehampton, UK and holds an MFA in Digital Arts from The University of Malta. Jo works with ink drawings, photography and film that create interludes of vulnerability and strength in constant dialogue with each other. In her recent project Regard, she challenges the ownership of the stare, its social values and regulations within the fabric of society, born with what society considers a ‘novel’ body, a human variation, she has been the bearer and giver of many powerful stares and has long been interested in this relationship between strangers and their unassailable non-verbal communication. She has had several exhibitions both solo and collective in Malta and Cornwall.
