Andro Semeiko _ Vazha

“Vazha” Andro Semeiko 9.04.21-9.05..21 Window Project at Rustaveli 37 location, presents paintings by Andro Semeiko inspired by Georgian calligraphy and poetry of Vazha Pshavela. “… He knew that they were cooking snake: this was a food they often ate. By sorcery the wizards could eat snake flesh and stay alive. Mindia thought if he ate snake he would be free of his troubled life. With stealth and loathing he took a slice, ate it, and then the heavens looked down with merciful eyes on Mindia. His spirit flooded back renewed, his bones were clothed in flesh made new. Sight was given his heart and eyes, as though hitherto he were blind and deaf. From that day on he understood what birds sang, plants and animals spoke when they were glad or suffering. Everything that the Lord had made had language: all was within the law. …” (“Snake-Eater”, 1901, Vazha Pshavela)
