David Meskhi

Color of Weightlessness

2016-2021

“Color of Weightlessness” unites the latest work by David Meskhi, the majority of them will be exhibited for the first time.

Capturing the movement of the body and its beauty is not only a quest for non-existent perfection for the author, it is also a study of identity, a search for freedom, and a deep emotional experience. A body with its gender fluidity in Meskhi’s Photographic image is as earthly as it is otherworldly.

In Meskhi’s photographs, unearthly bodies exist beyond time. In the space which is open to mystical interpretations, to state of mind and body encapsulating the mystery of the being. In the space where weightlessness has its colour.

 
Exhibition organized in partnership with Tbilisi Goethe Institute.

 

Guram Tsibakhashvili

Noon is the time for butterflies

2019-2021

 

Noon is the time for butterflies while the living organisms gradually disappear in the ecosystem about to go extinct, and spaces resemble post-human landscapes; the ephemeral but organic connection between a human and the environment undergoes an irreversible transformation.

Noon is the time for butterflies while in accelerated modernity, the time is a rare luxury for observation; a person's attitude towards a photographic image is unequivocally determined by self-centered passions when the gaze is directed only towards oneself.

In the reality of accelerated time, variable landscapes and irreversible changes of the environment, Guram Tsibakhashvili's Noon is the time for butterflies consists of images which more than just photographic series, they are the artist’s attempt to create an alternative ecosystem.

 

 


The Exhibition will be open to visitors on December 23 from 16.00 to 20.00.

The exhibition will be held till February 28, 2022.
