Mariam Detu

Mariam Natroshvili and Detu Jincharadze are Tbilisi-based artists. Working mainly in public (and sometimes private) spaces in their artistic and curatorial projects, they bring art to unexpected places, questioning the possibility of a different future. Since 2011 duo is working in two different directions: text based art and museums. In temporary museums artists collect and recontextualize forgotten information. With short texts, words and sentences always found and borrowed from different sources, Natroshvili and Jincharadze ask questions about history, memories and possible future. Duo is interested in post-Soviet mythology, disappearing knowledge, invisible people, forgotten places, and the recreation of vanished memories. They are also founders of the art newspaper Revolver and the Museum of Contemporary Art Tbilisi.
