Ladies and gentlemen,it is me a honour to open this exhibition of Georgian and Dutch artists
Feeling at home means that you have a home where you live,with your family and friends.Home implicates privacy. You have your own home. Home gives happines. Your home is a house in the city.The city is a political decision.There is a social cohesion.We live together witth other persons who are belonging to my people but also to other ethnicities.The social cohesion has influence for our empowernment.To live in our neighbourhood means socialisation.Feeling at home means that you have feelings of safety.You hope that there is protection and freedom.With you eyes you can regulate your life in the street. You can separate the public space from the private space.You can compare your life with the life of other people Sometimes we are afraid for other people.We have not the courage to participate in the culture of other people. Therefore there is the possibility to invite other people in order to know who they are. Art is a medium to participate in the way of life of other people. In art you can show your knowledge and feelings. Freud has said that there is EGO(who is responsible for his identity) ES(the subconsciouness) and there is SUPEREGO(conscience ) We can reflect about our feelings in the city.Freedom is important in our city.Freedom makes us happy. Freedom means that there is place for everyone in spite of our descent,belief,conviction,colour of our scin,sexual nature.Freedom means that you can do what you want to do,you can be what you want to be.Therefore tolerance is important. Artists love freedom and tolerance.
We live in big cities as Tiblisi and Rotterdam.Both cities have their own history. We know what war is.We love peace.We hope to give future for our children.Every city has his own problems. We are gratefull that there are neighbours who can help and assist us. . We create for each other.It is good that artists of Tiblisi and Rotterdam can meet each other. Artists can help us to live with the the complications of mental constructions in our brain. They give opportunity for our phantacy and dreams.Art has his roots in our brain. Therefore we are happy with this exhibition. We have feelings at home and we hope that you can participate in our feelings.Thank you very much.
