She is an invited lecturer with the same course at Ilia State University, Tbilisi, Georgia since 2019. Mariam has been a columnist in a Georgian art magazine Indigo where she writes about the visual arts and semiotics. Over the years she has participated in several video art and research-based projects, that cover art related and social campaigns, translation projects etc. as an author, editor, screenwriter and photographer.


My project at Faber is “Dogs of Didi Dighomi”. It is an art-project about Tbilisi stray dogs. “Dogs of Didi Dighomi” has theoretical background in zoosemiotics, ecosemiotics and animal-human communication studies. The project consists of two parts: editing the photo and video material and working on a social campaign that brings together the visual material on social media platforms to increase the awareness of the local community about the challenges of Tbilisi stray dogs in urban environment. During this residency I will be giving lectures on the theoretical topics which are the background of my project.
