Tamar Botchorishvili’s (b.1980) art is always on the verge between the real and the absurd, the beautiful and the horrible. These mutually exclusive existences can be considered Tamar's signature style. She is interested in fragmentation and works mainly in collage and assemblage, be it small polymer clay objects or watercolour drawings. Objects that are at the same time grotesque and humorous often deal with rather sensitive issues, related to identity, sexuality and oppression in the patriarchal society, death and subconsciousness.
