A multidisciplinary project
gantija 2013 Project is an on going multidisciplinary work embracing music, visual art and literature. The project aims to dialogue with ?gantija, a Unesco World Heritage Site situated on the island of Gozo through the use of contemporary media. Curated by Dr Vince Briffa, this artistic initiative is a collaboration between composer Mariella Cassar Cordina, artist Victor Agius and the international acclaimed Maltese writer Immanuel Mifsud. The project was launched in June 2013 at the Temples via a performance of ?gantija 2013, composed by Cassar Cordina and penned by Mifsud, and sculpture interventions and light installations by Agius.
