The flat hosting the group show by artists: Ana Gzirishvili, Salome

Dumbadze, Nina Kintsurashvili, Lado Lomitashvili, and Qeu Meparishvili

has served multiple functions for five artists. For some it was a studio

space and a storage, for others a temporary shelter and a safe space for

discussions and thought sharing for all the exhibiting participants.

In places, with a lack of art institutions, artists come together to search for

alternative ways to support each other's practices and evolve individually.

Thus affordable urban spaces become vital for the local art scene. The

government's dysfunctional housing politics, unexpected acceleration of

gentrification, and the economic crisis brought by the pandemic and the

war in the region has caused the disappearance of such spaces not only

for artists but also for citizens.

The exhibition is a collective action of marking the space with artworks as a

reaction to the invasive gentrification. FIVEROOMFLAT is a translation of

the dialogue between participating artists as well as a materialization of

their togetherness.
