Jincharadze Kote

Kote Jincharadze after graduating from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, Kote Jincharadze lived and worked in St. Petersburg (1992-1996) and Moscow (1996 – 1997). Since 2001, he has been a professor at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts (Media art and Design). During the 2000s, exhibitions of the artist were held under various titles in several art spaces:“OBJECT SPACE” at the Rouine Gallery, (Geneva, Switzerland. 2011), “Silence Is a Sign of Consent” (performance, Pont-Nefi, Paris, France. 2011) etc. Kote Jincharadze mostly works in the field of conceptual art. The main theme of his projects and exhibitions are important epoch-making inventions that have fundamentally changed human life in general. These inventions – primitive human fire lighters or modern sophisticated mechanisms – remind us of familiar or unfamiliar installations and objects in his paintings and graphic drawings with minimalist means of expression. The projects proposed by the artist in this form allow the viewer to think and judge. His political and social action-performances are also interesting, for example, “Silence is a Sign of Consent” held in 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania, or the performance “Water Grinding” organized in 2014 to protect the rights of workers at the Chancellery in Tbilisi. Kote Jincharadze founded the first international contemporary art festival “Artra” in Racha in 2005 and since then has been hosting the annual events in cooperation with the region’s museums and art institutions.
