Encounters, Together Apart
Kristina Borg, Maltese artist and educator, uses participatory practices to tackle issues of space and society, communities and neighborhoods. In her interdisciplinary research-practice she spends time integrating into specific communities and devotes her attention to relationships between people. In dialogue with the community and/or the place, her work focuses on the creation of projects that involve experiential processes relating to socio-political issues in urban-collective spaces.
On February 17, as part of Together Apart — FRONTIER (cohort in English), we invited Kristina Borg as a guest speaker in dialogue with Andrés Knob and the artists of the cohort. The Maltese artist spoke about her project “No Man’s Land” emphasizing how the concept of border can be materialized in different ways and using various artistic languages.
Kristina Borg is part of the international community of ´ace, having been an artist in residence in 2019. During her residency here she developed a series of photolithography images that later became part of the edition of her book “Imkejjen u Rkejjen “.
