Bouillon Group – Project Apartment 1 – 11
The Bouillon Group (Natalia Vatsadze, Teimuraz Kartlelishvili, Vladimer Khartishvili, Konstantine Kitiashvili, Ekaterina Ketsbaia, Zurab Kikvadze) was founded in 2008. The Bouillon Group is the one of a few artists’ groups focusing on utilization of public non artistic spaces. The group is concentrated on e active confluence of a space, which is not concerned with art and artistic production or in contrary intervention with non artistic activity in artistic space.
In Apartment 11, Bouillon Group – together with the artist Anne Baumann – invited observers to consider memores of a recent period in history: the 1990s in Georgia and Germany. In this project, member of Bouillon Group Lado Khartishvili built a replica of a room from his grandmother’s house in the Soviet town of Ordzhonikidzee (now in Russia) in his apartment in Rosenstrasse 11 in Halle, Germany. His Georgian family had to give up this house as a result of new borders. The Apartment11 art project aims to create performative interaction between guests and hosts.
