site specific event, 2015, Mziuri park, Tbilisi

Blog

Mziuri children town opened in the beginning of 1980s and for the decades was a popular place for families and children in Tbilisi. However, the memory of this place is slowly fading away. Abandoned architecture in the park hardly reminds its famous past. Lokokino, a mosaic shell in the middle of the park is one of the most preserved monuments – the cinema which was never in proper use. Project LOKOKINO opens this place for public. In a one day event, the site-specific installation in here will recover the lost memories of Mziuri.
 

The event was a result of  the artist in residence in GeoAir Tbilisi. The residency was possible through the collaboration and support of K.A.I.R. – Košice Artist in Residence program. The residency is additionally supported by ECF STEP Beyond and MKSR.
