Title: Heroes of Stagnation
Year: 2005
Size: Room installation
Material: Photos on gyps plates, wood, wallpaper
Place: National Gallery, Tbilisi, Georgia
Collaboration: With Nino Purtskhvanidze
 
   

Photos of famous Georgians of the 20th century taken by photographer Nino Purtskhvanidze were shown in an installation I had built. The installation was a reaction to the current situation in Georgia. There is always a reverse side to every fa├žade, which is often not shown or openly discussed.

This project also deals with the gap between different generations in Georgia. The struggle between generations can be found everywhere, but in Georgia, where drastic changes took place following the fall of Soviet Union, and where there were three new presidents with three new visions in the space of then years, an absolute gap opened up.

In this project we also created a platform where these changes could be discussed and analyzed.
