Nino Kvrivishvili’s works with textile installations. Her resent projects are focused on processes of changes, investigation of history and inverting them in a new reality with colours, shapes, patterns and textures.  Most of her textile works constitute by depiction of abstract images and are charged with narrative meaning.
