Tamuna Chabashvil

Her current work revolves around the topics of tradition, pattern, and voicelessness seen from the perspective of gender. Mapping private stories, memories and questions into visual and tactile narratives, her work is often inspired by traditional artifacts and the methods of textile production. Her work further explores the properties already inherent in textiles as material, such as: fragility, mobility, and the ability to contain or shelter.
Tamuna will talk about her project The Mantle (2018), which she developed in Berlin over the past few months.
