Diana Mavroleon in conversation with Annemarie Borg 12 May
"Annemarie Borg's work is eclectic in that it traverses both mixed media and the individual/separate forms of music, words, poetry, sounds and the visual arts. As Founder of the ‘Antara Project’ Borg uses art forms as tools to deal with her main concerns: the fundamental changes in social and cultural environments and how these affect the present day and generations to come. “In today's world we have created our own challenge, are we now up to the task of facing it? In this task what is the part Artists can assume?” (AMB). Antara aims to build a louder voice through Art and will result in a compilation album and a day conference/performance later this year. Borg’s ‘live’ shows range from classical repertoire to experimental music with organic sound-scapes, electronica, improvisation, often in collaboration with other musicians...
