11 and 12 May, 2023.
"Beyond Visualising Language" - a scientific conference and an art exhibition were held at the same time in Deichtorhallen, one of Europe's largest galleries, in Hamburg. The organizer is the Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures of the University of Hamburg. Three of my works were presented at the exhibition.
At the workshop, I talked about the diversity of Georgian writing and the centuries-old calligraphic tradition. I made a calligraphic work on the spot: a Georgian translation of Goethe's poem "Erlkönig", which was accompanied by Schubert's music based on the motifs of the same poem. The purpose of this artistic presentation was to find out whether it is possible to read the feeling behind the words from a work made in an unknown and less legible script for the viewer.
