Thea Djordjadze’s temporary sculptural environments draw on the language of architecture, allude to modernist design and echo the culture of her native Georgia. She combines a variety of artistic, industrial and unconventional materials to produce idiosyncratic works full of contrasts. By reconfiguring her works for the duration of an exhibition to respond to the particularities of the spaces in which they are installed, Djordjadze investigates institutional modes of presentation and display and how context affects the understanding and experience of art. Sprüth Magers is pleased to present Djordjadze’s fresh, site-specific iterations of earlier sculptures combined with entirely new works across two floors of the London gallery.
