*1984 in Georgia, lives in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Nino Kvrivishvili studied textile design at the State Academy of Arts in Tbilisi. In many of her works she uses traditional weaving techniques and combines them with a new formal language.
On the handwoven textile of the Georgian artist one can see the bill for the wool used to weave the work. Besides the tautological game in the work Nino Kvrivishvili refers to the long tradition of weaving in Georgia and other former Soviet States as well as to her family history. Her grandmother was sent to work in a newly built textile factory in Gori in Georgia after the second world war.
The wool used in the work comes from Soviet times and was acquired at the flea market.
