I am Pauline, 27 y.o., Tbilisi based multimedia artist from Petersburg. I live in Georgia since march 2020.

My thing is to carry reality through my body and other physical phenomena. I am self-taught, DIY based and I learn mostly by observing. I practice vipassana (S.N.Goenka) meditation for 6 years already and my art is directly connected with my buddist refuge and practice of the loving-kindness.

For me art is a political action towards deeply ecological world. I believe that being in contact with our own nature solves so many problems we have. Beauty is healing. Art is a language any human being can understand. So I embody emptiness and it becomes space for that. I sculpt objects with empty space for people's personal processes. Take pictures by listening, not shooting. Offer my body as a vessel if I do performance or research.

Garbbha (skt: गर्भ) — inner space, sanctuary, vessel.

Deep ecology is an environmental philosophy which promotes the inherent worth of all living beings regardless of their instrumental utility to human needs, plus the restructuring of modern human societies in accordance with such ideas
