b. 1979

Sciberras was born in Nigeria but then grew up in Malta and Scotland.  The artist studied at Gray’s School of Art, and now works and exhibits internationally.

Sciberras’ work is concerned with exploring the physical and mental structures we use to make sense of our lives; constructing and deconstructing them and testing their limits.
Recently, the artist has been working with the motifs of the walled city, the secret garden, the labyrinth, the island and the box, drawing on their contradictory dimensions of protection and confinement, security and threat, escape and exile.

Her most recent project was a solo exhibition in the Contemporary Hall of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Valletta, Malta, which ran from December 2011 to January 2012, entitled “Little White Lies”.
