Because we are all still stuck in the doleful demi-life of sequestering indoors due to commie China’s botched coverup (FUCK YOU, CHINA!), art exhibitors and curators have been forced to conduct affairs mostly online. Ugh. Hence, the Tbilisi Online Biennale has kicked off with a series of video art installations, virtual tours, and artist talks. Called ‘Home Alone’, the biennale is chock-full of artistic inventions and interventions in the digital domain, focusing on the theme of survival, Darwinian dynamics and political-economic adaptation.
“As a child of 90s Georgia, a DIY approach has become my way of survival,” biennale organizer Mariam Natroshvili says. “When nothing worked, we had to invent and do everything by ourselves. This ability later proved effective as a working method in my organizational and artistic practice.”
The cyber-drenched showcase involves scads of slick Georgian contemporary artists, including the multi-hyphenate designer, hip hop spitter and visual artist Maxime Machaidze, and provocative conceptual artist Gvantsa Jishkariani, among others.
“If there is no museum, you have to make one. If there is no biennale, you have to start it. If you have neither a building, nor money, nor a collection — you need to find means to navigate the situation. You need to build digital galleries, museums, or temporarily transform any space into a museum,” Mariam says.
Georgia is sooooooo fucking NEXT-LEVEL! Check it…
