"The authors of the museum found and combined different versions and parts of popular tale in libraries and archives. Tsikara Museum is a mixture of reality and fiction. The authors also found the belongings of the fairytale character and exhibited them in the museum. Working at the museum was like an investigation. The belongings that were found is the evidence that proves that the fairytale has happened. The story that has been told many times reached us in a form of a secret, an equation. A mystery that we must unravel every time and answer the question - to believe or not to believe? What we believe will always happen if it hasn’t happened yet." - Mariam Natroshvili, Artist.
The exhibition was presented for the first time in October 2018 at the Struvelpeter Museum in Frankfurt within the framework of the cultural program of the project "Frankfurt Book Fair Guest Country - Georgia”. It was implemented with the support of the Georgian National Book Center, the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia, the Struvelpeter Museum, and TBC. Studio "Illustrator" and "Contact" worked on it.
Visitors can visit the exhibition from April 1st at TBC Concept Space.
