Thea Djordjadze makes expansive installations that she develops in situ and in close interaction with the surrounding spaces.

About

The Georgian-born artist begins by exploring the specific qualities of a given exhibition space and then creates work that subtly transforms the perception and possible readings of the architectonic situation.

Ordinary staples such as fabrics, steel, glass, plaster, foam plastic, wood, and papier-mâché are the materials out of which Djordjadze manufactures sculptural objects. Presented in carefully composed arrangements sometimes complemented by found objects, paintings, and drawings, her installations recall domestic or functional settings. Her idiosyncratically proportioned sculptures suggest pieces of furniture or elements of an exhibition display such as beds, frameworks, pedestals, or glass cases. The design vocabulary blends modernist geometric rigor with organic amorphous improvisation.
