For this 
presentation, Levan Mindiashvili takes the point of departure the oeuvre of LA-based Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader, and mainly his last piece “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.
