The focus of Levan Mindiashvili’s practice is a shifting condition of historically accepted social forms and value systems, in which he revisits canonical truths regarding identity, history, and the language. His solo presentation at NADA, takes the point of departure the oeuvre of LA-based Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader, and mainly his last piece titled “In Search of The Miraculous” (1975) in which Ader attempted to sail across the Atlantic on his way to the upcoming show in Groningen. The discovery of his boat 10 months later and disappearance of his body, inevitably fueled already existing longing for erasure of the border between art and life, endured by the fact that Ader’s conceptually rigorous oeuvre was deeply invested in its seeming antithesis: Romanticism, and for him, the authenticity of the work of art lay not in representing philosophical concepts, but in embodying them. In works presented here, Mindiashvili explores conditions, in which despite the ever-growing complexity of our everyday reality, our perception of the world is reduced to the single digital image: ephemeral and temporal, moderated and conditioned either by us – ourselves or by technology and algorithms. If pigmented hydrocal tiles attempt to grasp ultimate physicality of the digital image, his hand painted mirror “Studies” become the point of encounter of the work and it’s surrounding – not depicting it, nor dissolving in it, but the synthesis of these two.

Levan Mindiashvili GHOST, 2014 | Mural, enamel and spray paint, 36′ x 19,6′ (11 x 6 cm.)
Commissioned by Fourth Arts Block in partnership with Ideal Glass. This project is part of FABLES, a series of public works exploring Lower East Side History.

Levan Mindiashvili, whose project investigates gentrification and its effects on architecture and sense of place, describes, “With the mural ‘Ghost’ I want to contribute to a raising awareness in the importance of historical heritage and outline the overwhelming expansion of gentrification and generalization in the contemporary world.” The work is based on original photograph of 1936 “East Houston Street – N.E. Corner – Second Avenue” by Percy Loomis Sperr © Milstein Division, The New York Public Library.

Special Thanks to Patricio Gonzalez Vivo for his contribution with technical support. More info
