ARTZ ID caught up with the talented Andrew Borg Wirth to get to know more about his interdisciplinary practice. Andrew has worn the hats of designer, curator and creative director on several artistic projects locally. Whatever his role, the outcome always looks impeccable and polished.
We’ve seen your name pop up on several artistic projects on the Maltese scene. Can you tell us about your creative practice so far?
Well, my work has been largely collaborative, as I come together with different local creatives across varying briefs; so I’ve had the opportunity to work towards very different outcomes. My training is architectural, so more often than not I intervene within space to create environments around objects, events or to frame narratives. However my work often lies at the intersection of a number of fields; I have operated as a designer on theatre productions, a curator alongside other artists, a creative director within fashion imagery and a storyteller with narratives across various projects. Over the past three years I’ve remained open towards various briefs that have allowed me to grow personally and professionally. I like to think that with my work I am as political as I can be. The pursuit of beauty alongside the deliberation of contemporary realities, values and debates is a constant part of the work I have been responsible for.
