Georgian Folk Choir

Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds

Booking information
A photograph from Vanessa Winship’s series Georgia: Seeds Carried by the Wind.

An evening of Georgian folk music in the Art Gallery.

To accompany the exhibition Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds, we invite London-based choir Maspindzeli to sing traditional Georgian music in the gallery space in response to particular photographs in Vanessa Winship’s series Georgia: Seeds Carried by the Wind.  

Winship first visited Georgia in 2003 and quickly became fascinated by the visible marks of its ancient past, and by a palpable air of melancholia. In 2008, she returned to Georgia in the wake of the war with neighbouring Russia. The photography in this series reflects on notions of time, pitting questions about the future of Georgia against the scope of the country’s history.

This performance is free with your ticket to the exhibition Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds.

Free with your exhibition ticket on Thursday 5 July. Book your ticket.

Performance times: 7-8pm
