Mamuka Japharidze currently lives and works in Shindisi, Georgia, and also spends time in the UK. Japharidze works across a broad range of mediums, including public happenings, archived images, video, photography, drawing, sculpture, and sound works. His practice is often inspired by natural surroundings within the context of Tbilisi. In the 2014 exhibition Re: Museum at the Georgian National Museum, Japharidze presented Media’s Garden, a mixed media installation of indigenous plant life and video projections of dense local forests which have a mystical history. Japharidze was selected to represent Georgia at the 48th Venice Biennale.
