Guards For Sexted Bodies_Language Curves Space“, 2010

In the video installation „Guards For Sexted Bodies_Language Curves Space“ explores the phenomena of power and money in the context of the present economic and social crisis and contrasts them to the dynamics inherent in language as the social subject's practice which is experimental, gendered and transgressive.
In Stylianidou´s work, language pierces and subverts its everyday use in an attempt to suggest new paradigms for knowledge and experience.

The work also explores the interconnections between, on the one hand, the language and, on the other, the voice, the body and the image as rhythm and materiality. 





Gaseirneba Karabaghshi  გასეირნება ყარაბაღში



Levan Tutberidze
Drama/Action, 2005, 1h 45min.
with English Subtitles

The film is based on the 1992 novel “A Trip to Karabach” by Aka Morchiladze. A group of teenage boys from Tbilisi take a trip to Azerbaijan to buy drugs, and end up fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh war when they are captured by Azerbaijani militants, with one subsequently being captured by the Armenians.
The film shows the absurdity of war with poignant humor and satirical wit. The main protagonists prove themselves as lost heroes on a serious voyage to adult life and its remarkable adventures.
