An Archive of My Own

An Archive of My Own

    An Archive of My Own is the product of a research project in Georgian Jewish History, which I conducted during the fellowship program at the Prins Foundation for Artists and Writers in Residence, New York. For An Archive of My Own I created, following Virginia Woolf, a personal study: a room of my own. A wooden table, a chair, a lamp, and an indoor plant form a homelike atmosphere. On the table, a large picture book and an essay await the visitor. 

The picture book includes screen-prints inspired by the archival material. By defying common notions of archive and research, I attempt to sustain the point of view of an artist in historical investigation as well as to acknowledge and address my own history as a Georgian Jew who grew up during the last years of the Soviet Union.
