Description :

CEMENT FIELDS is about the work of mourning and memory – be it personal, collective or cultural. Mourning offers a way to process past trauma through memorial practices. An essential part of mourning is the desire to know, to share the pain and express it clearly, not necessarily to make sense of it, but to tell the story. In order for the work of mourning to be complete, what has been dug up needs to become public.

Although Nikvashvili’s characters are profoundly personal, they are also strangely familiar, they are the familiar as strange, the strange within the familiar. These personae exist in the paradigm of the weird and the eerie. As Mark Fisher puts it, the weird and the eerie allow us to see the inside from the perspective of the outside.
