A fictional story written from the perspective of object-oriented thought - a garment, or accessory found in a market in the Caucasus region - the performance by Ana Gzirishvili reflects on marketplaces and other small scale spaces which acts in-between languages, words and objects. Touching upon the topic of periphery, Gzirishvili creates a poetic language inspired by the act of collecting second hand garments and clothing not for consumption but rather to stand a critical position toward a global hierarchical context. The performance will combine the act of speaking with that of reading. A small zine produced for the performance will include English poetry, Georgian wording and drawings distributed before the performance starts.
Performance will take place at Pickle Bar. Free admission. No registration is required. Language: English / Georgian.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. Performance starts at 7:30 PM.
