Georgian art collective Bouillon Group created a sound installation called 100 minutes, thematically referring to the 100th anniversary of regaining independence by Poland and Georgia. National anthems and Georgian patriotic songs will be presented in a modernized form of electronic club music. The eponymous 100 minutes are the duration of the installation and also refer to that important anniversary in both countries.
As the artists explain “It has been 100 years since the announcement of the first democratic Republic [Democratic Republic of Georgia, founded on May 26th, 1918, existed until 1921]. We are at the stage of restoring memory lost during the Soviet system. Bouillon Group, through music and fun, will try to fill these black holes and restore lost memory”.
