Georgian National Museum | Svaneti Museum of History and Ethnography
Project ArtBeat Presents
August 1 – September 10, 2017
ProjectArtBeat and Georgian National Museum present “here”- a solo exhibition of New York based Georgian artist Levan Mindiashvili.
Transitional state of today’s world in yet unknown future and fragility of all possible paradigms, notions or values are conditions, central in Mindiashvili’s practice. Physical nature of his chosen materials and interdisciplinary approach in execution, highlights in – between, temporal conditions and question the mechanisms of our perception: pigmented plaster sculptures mimicking found concrete remnants adhere painterly qualities with neon lights of various colors, while paintings, executed in acrylic, at first glance look very alike to pixelated, vintage photographs, are transformed into three dimensional objects. Alltogether, they create an installation where architectural and natural elements outline the fluid, cyclical nature of the universe and attempt to capture a physical experience of ever – flowing present – of “here” and “now”.
Opening: Saturday, July 30, 3 PM accompanied by the Q&A with the artist.
