The cross-border project on public space on the periphery brings together three artists [etc.] respectively from two European margins in both Georgia and Iceland as to discuss and act within the differently defined public spaces on site. The participants' sets of knowledge and experience together with additional input by local professionals will frame the interaction in yet unknown spaces, rephrasing meaning and possibilities of and in public space. We attempt to examine the positioning of the individual in the given structure(s) through the artists' exchange and involvement with our surroundings. Hence the project additionally tackles questions of collaboration and solidarity in artistic practice and/or connected to the public (sphere).
