Music by GiO JANIASHVILI for the live 3D cinema projection/performance Nervous Magic Lantern by KEN JACOBS.

"Jacobs' Nervous Magic Lantern performances, which are with a hand-manipulated projector and use neither film nor video. Highly stroboscopic and hallucinatory, this kinetic performance results in otherworldly spaces and plays of near-abstraction and suggestive imagery. This work highlights Jacobs' relentless experimentation with the very fabric of projected light."

As a basis for the idea of exhibition a small-size book published in Tiflisi in 1926 was taken, representing a collection of Grigol Robakidze’s early dramas. A basis for the cover design of the book is Franz Marc’s famous canvas “Tiger.” At the exhibition the artifacts created by Irakli Gamrekeli, Kirill Zdanevich, Lado Gudiashvili, David Kakabadze, Elene Akhvlediani, and other artists tell us about the united strong wave of theater and cinema, literature and art created by the epoch of Modernism. It left a significant mark in Georgian art and culture. It finds one of the distant sources in German Expressionism.

- 17 January 2013 - 6:30 PM - at the Insitute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) - London, UK

Trinity Laban Fourth Plinth Performance:
Musicians from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance assemble to create a performance event, inspired by ICA's Fourth Plinth: Contemporary Monument exhibition, challenging the conventions of the classical music concert and exploring the possibilities of performance within a contemporary gallery setting. Examining what being put on an empty plinth means, this performance explores how the context in which something is presented can alter our perception of it. In a symbiotic relationship with the artworks exhibited, the performers will showcase a mixture of music, performance art and sound, inviting members of the public to approach them and the exhibits and to claim their own space alongside them.

The work by GiOrgi Janiashvili: DEMONSTRATION FOR SIX GROUPS - Megaphone and unspecified number of unspecified instruments in 6 groups.

Performed by GiOrgi Janiashvili and 25 musicians from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance:
Nick Morrish, Timothy Cape, Andreas Papapetrou, David Jones, Soosan Lolavar, Manuela Colella, Charlotte Drummond, Sophie English, Julia Hart, Yunwei Huang, Christy Kam, Dasol Lee, Elin Parry, Alvaro Siculiana, Tim Chen, Stephanie Cheung, William Davies, Grant Dowse, Sarah Hill, Caitlin Rowley, Robert Simonis, Josh Stokes, Julia Weatherley, Claire-Louise Auguste, Niamh Beddy, Raisa Zapryanova.
