Express Trailers, one of Malta’s leading transport and total logistics operator, was recently tasked with transporting a 270cm-high statue in unpatinated bronze of local long-distance swimmer Neil Agius from Italy to Malta.

This was done in support of artist Austin Camilleri, whose solo exhibition, ‘LE. IVA | ANGER IS A LAZY FORM OF GRIEF’ is open for public viewing at Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta up until 10th April.

Mr Camilleri’s bronze work, titled ‘LEAP’, was produced in Pietrasanta, close to Lucca, and weighed over 250kg.

“Supporting art is always an honourable thing to do. Especially when we get to support it in the best way we can, by securing its safe handling, transportation, and deliver to its final destination. It is what we do every day and what we do best,” Express Trailers CEO Franco Azzopardi said.

“We are proud to have, once again, had the opportunity to contribute our resources and expertise to what promises to be one of the highlights of this year’s artistic calendar of events,” he continued.

Work on the statue started last summer in Malta, with an initial 3D body scanning which the artist first reworked digitally before enlarging manually in wax.

“I am delighted to have found the support of Express Trailers in transporting this sculpture from Italy to Malta,” Mr Camilleri said.

“This monumental sculpture of Neil is one of the main works in this exhibition and, therefore, its safe transportation was paramount. So, I left it up to the professionals,” he concluded.
