Group show Here There. Matters of Location, Contemporary Georgian Art
curated by Charles Merewether
Organised by the Georgian National Museum Tbilisi History Museum in the framework of the project "Contemporary Art Gallery".
The project "Contemporary Art Gallery" aims to support the development of the Georgian contemporary art locally and regionally, as well as in the international arena.
This time, the Tbilisi History Museum will host the third international exhibition which is composed of five artists who live and work in Europe and Georgia. The question is: does their location make a difference to the character of their work? Is there specificity in each work determined by where it has been made? Does their place of birth and upbringing determine and shape their work? Or, perhaps place and location simply informs and artists work, as one of many factors influence a person's life and work.

Manifesta 10 / Public Program
I will be participating in Manifesta 10 with the project Transformers St. Petersburg.
The project arose from the narratives of the resourceful labor force of legal and illegal migrants, who with limited resources and opportunities, are ‘making do’ in Russia today.
Transformers is an ode to the creative and resilient attitude needed to survive in contemporary Russian society. This “transformer attitude” stands in sharp contrast to the general perception of immigrants, and within Russian society in particular.
In addition on July 9–10 4:00–8:00 p.m Transformers St. Petersburg / Living Statue
can be visited at Vitebsk Station, Zagorodny av. 52
Hope to see you there.
July 22-24 2014
