Anna R. Japaridze - Mementos from the 14th Floor
Orbeliani Square, Tbilisi, Georgia
Moving Gallery by Artbeat in the framework of ‘Caravan’ project presents Anna R. Japaridze's solo exhibition, ‘Mementos from the 14th Floor’.
In the anonymous rooms of 5-star hotels in cities and resorts across Georgia, thousands of people are learning what it means to be locked inside the same room for two weeks. These people live behind a veil; they sleep, they pace, they examine the life that exists beyond their window pane — perhaps exchanging furtive goods, or words of camaraderie with their floor-mates; those with whom they share lost time. Outside, life continues.
This exhibition casts a double gaze, offering a window into life on the 14th floor of a quarantine hotel in Batumi, and a view out onto the world of interactions below.
Anna R. Japaridze is a British-Georgian artist and filmmaker who is currently enrolled in an MFA in Documentary Film and Video at Stanford University.
