Soul Kitchen [Colouring Book / Ausmalbuch] (2021)
Publisher: Mukao / self-published
On October 16 Printroom invited artist Sophia Tabatadze to present her colouring book with a workshop for kids and grownups where they were colouring various drawings from the Soul Kitchen depicting everyday objects and invented shapes.
The drawings that are collected in this book were made during the pandemic. The artist cataloged her home observations during the lockdown. Strange things appeared in her home where she lives with her six year old: toy lizards were taped on the slide in the living room, iron met drawing materials on the kitchen table.. Instead of tidying up Sophia treasured these combinations and captured them on A4 paper. Rather then going to her studio she brought her studio home.
The colouring book Soul Kitchen is placed in a multifunctional corrugated cardboard folder which can also be turned into an easel and a wall pocket. Sophia made it in collaboration with Mukao, a Georgian company specialising in innovative products from corrugated cardboard.
