Sophia Tabatadze

Presentation of artworks @ Silk Museum

Curated by: Sophia Kilassonia

Sophia Tabatadze, born in 1977 in Tbilisi, Georgia, lives and works in Berlin, Germany. After graduating from the Nikoladze Art College in Tbilisi, she studied at Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Tabatadze’s pieces are not related to one specific location, be it her homeland, Georgia, or the lands overseas, but rather remain relevant everywhere. The human condition in a global village, reduced to ornamental motifs, reflected in architectural innovations, pieces of embroidery or snaps of phrases applies to anyone. With the work ‘Humancon Undercon’ Tabatadze represented her country in the Georgian Pavilion at the 2007 Venice Biennale, where she again concentrated on the home, and on the relation between architecture and the individual.
