until 04.06. | #0512ARTatBerlin | Galerie Kornfeld shows from 23rd April 2016 the artist Tamara Kvesitadzes with her second solo exhibition “Any Directions” at the gallery.
Galerie Kornfeld is pleased to announce Tamara Kvesitadze’s second solo show Any Direction at Galerie Kornfeld. Featuring new sculptures, a large-scale, wall-based installation and recent water colours, her new body of work continues Tamara Kvesitadze’s ongoing investigation into human relationships.
Kvesitadze’s artistic practice focuses on the tension between the human and its world, with the body always being at the centre of her exploration. Her way of understanding the body is ambiguous and always in flux. Seeing it as a constantly moving and transformative entity, her sculptures – often kinetic – are dynamic with a deliberately unfinished quality to them. Bordering on the grotesque, they reference classical sculptures and allude to playful games between the subconscious and conscious worlds.
The wall-based sculpture Any Direction dramatically spans across the longest wall in the gallery. It is made up of numerous panels with water colour figures inside, which move in a myriad of directions. Almost appearing like a 3D storyboard, it is as if the sometimes dancing, sometimes fighting figures are in a continuum, always transforming into the next image. The artist works with multiple images to tell stories of love, fear, desire and desperation.
Tamara Kvesitadze (*1968) counts among the most reputable artists from Georgia. Having first been featured in a group show at the Georgian Pavillion in Venice in 2007, she would go on to represented Georgia with a solo presentation at the 2011 Venice Biennale. Her works are in numerous international private and museum collections, and she has public sculptures in various locations all over Georgia including the 8,5 metre high sculpture Men and Woman at the port of Batumi.
