David Horvitz - წვიმა Rain
There are 64 different words for rain in the Georgian language. Artist David Horvitz worked with Tbilisi-based curator Elene Abashidze to collect these words. This resulted in a glossary that describes the subtle differences in how water can fall from the sky. The wealth of expressions for a single natural phenomenon also makes visible what we will lose through the effects of the climate crisis, when the variety of expressions for rain no longer apply.
