Anna Kin's project "ღ," named after the Georgian letter "ღ," whose form playfully echoes the symbol of the heart, directly imbues the statement on anti-colonial language policy with affect. Her work raises questions not only about how alphabets sound but also about how they animate our sensory and emotional experiences of the world. It explores how they enliven our attachment to political and social models in transitional periods. In her film, we see not only a decisive attempt to catalog the auditory and gestural world of languages during crises and transitions but also a work of art that challenges how we think about our affective and somatic embodiment of language in a broader sense. – Leah Feldman, professor at the University of Chicago, researching empire, nationalism, and critical approaches to ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in the Caucasus and Central Asia.
