Zurab Rtveliashvili belongs to the generation of post-soviet artists that have radically changed the vector of Georgian literature. He introduced a new vision with both the linguistic and conceptual experiments in his poetry. His experiments go beyond text. He happens to be one of the pioneers of sound-poetry and poetic live-performance in Georgia. Zurab is one of the very few artists from the 90’s who have stayed loyal to the roots and principles of avant-garde. Both in articles and his poetic work, he keeps on highlighting the importance of creating a new strategy for preserving these ideals and transitioning them into contemporary art-reality.
