Beyond Linguistic Translations of Marginalised Texts

My research aims at enhancing the representation of marginal voices from minor languages and cultures. I explore alternative approaches to translation in order to ensure that seemingly untranslatable texts can enter the cultural domain. I focus on the writings of protofeminist Soviet-Georgian authors. I explore the ways in which contemporary art practices can contribute to mediating their texts. I work across interlingual translations and the practice of curating, as well as painting and clay to create a new methodology for translating the texts. I instil my subjective identity, of an immigrant living in the UK, by exposing my own vulnerability as a non-native, non-fluent English speaker. Informed by my lived experience, in my translations, I subvert the dominance of linguistic language. Instead, I create a non-hierarchical constellation of meanings produced by gestures, materials, and various non-verbal and verbal languages.
