The Vazquez Building is pleased to present an installation by Levan Mindiashvili “Suites for Unintended Archeology,” his second individual project in New York.
In this exhibition the artist further investigates public and private spaces and their influence on formation of our identity. It focuses on issues that we deal with on almost everyday basis — the sense of place, idea of ‘home,’ gentrification and displacement, as for many of us, today a sense of place is more precisely identified as a sense of displacement — triggered whether by the economics of gentrification or politics.
Abstract shapes of reflected buildings in his paintings and hermetic remnants of what once might have been a house in his sculptures, is an attempt to create a space, an open field, for reflection and exploration of personal stories.
The show can be visited through Sunday, May 31.
