Key Work: Evelina Gambino & Tekla Aslanishvili on "Algorythmic Island"
2 March 2021
In this talk Evelina Gambino & Tekla Aslanishvili discuss the challenges, conflicts and negotiations that have shaped their individual and collective work in Anaklia and across other infrastructural spaces in Georgia. Born in the field, their collaboration and friendship has travelled across different settings and countries to become a daily element of their respective lives. The continuous conversation in which they are engaged unfolds through different media, from text messages to written samples, stills of Aslanishvili‘s film, meetings, discussions, phone calls, etc. This process is a testament to the impossibility of treating the field as a bounded object as well as fieldwork as an experience that can be contained by any strict time/space or discipline. Bringing together these different political, affective and practical elements, Gambino & Aslanishvili will discuss their practice and future projects.
